Harlan juice all the way. Big Bill profundity, serious notes of tobacco and loamy earth, black fruit. Phenomenal.

Monolithic (one liner). Structured (too tight). Elegant (closed and not showing much personality). Shows potential (underwhelms for hype and price). But if you take the good... it was great.

Big and dark with black tea. Way too expensive and exclusive.

Despite being the kind of guy that watches NASCAR for the 🔥 auto crashes, this wine was worth it's praise. As you could tell by the label design, this Cab blend was made in concert with Mr. Harlan for people that have been rumored to pay $100,000 to get their name on this unique blend. A benevolent act of kindness to gift me a bottle of a wine that has been said to beat out Scarecrow in '06. It really really was a great wine
