Harlan Estate 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon “Estate” Oakville, Napa Valley 100 Points
Jeb Dunnuck 100 Points: “Matching the perfect 2018, the 2019 Proprietary Red Wine is deeper and richer than the Maiden and has an incredibly pure, layered perfume of ripe currants, truffle, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and gravelly earth. This carries to a full-bodied red with building yet fine tannins, incredible purity of fruit, and flawless balance. Reminding me of a First Growth from Bordeaux given its acidity and tannin balance, as well as just overall sense of class, give bottles 7-8 years and enjoy over the following 30+ years.”
Vinous 99 Points: “The 2019 Harlan Estate is supremely elegant. Bright floral accents perk up o core of red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petals, sage, and mint all run through the 2019. Medium-full in body and gracious, the 2019 is all energy. It’s not so much a wine of a vintage, but rather a wine that reflects the personality of a place and style. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s breath and resonance, yet notable freshness and verve remain. This is one of the more delicate, nuanced wines readers will taste from 2019, a year that generally yielded wines of opulence.
