Dark Ruby. Dry herbs, pencil lead, very dark berries, dark cherries and vanilla. Plush and inviting palate, ripe fruit with the oak notes of chocolate and vanilla. Long finish. Very tasty.

Extremely smooth and supple. Much lighter and less complex compared to the Ovid. Excellent wine though.

Harlan's second label (don't have the coin to afford the first label!), this is a classic Napa cab. Intense nose of cassis with hints of vanilla, black fruits, and perhaps a trace of leather. Still a bit closed on the palate, this is a great example of a CA cab that will evolve into a great wine, but probably a few more years down the line. Not convinced on the quality/price ratio, but this is a terrific wine.

Took some time to open up, but when it did it punched me in the face. Fantastic.
