Harlan Estate 2017 Napa Valley Red Wine
Winemaker Notes: The 36 acre vineyards of Harlan Estate are located on some of the better elevations and soils in the Oakville appellation. From the vineyards, you get great views of the Napa Valley. One of the keys to the terroir of Harlan Estate is the elevation. This ranges from a low of 225 feet to an impressive 1225 feet above sea level. Harlan Estate vineyards are in truth, just one piece of a bigger estate. In total, the property of Harlan Estate includes more than 240 acres of land! Everything is not planted. A lot of the surface area is relegated to the picturesque hills, valleys and amazing views from various overlooks.
97 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Harlan Estate sashays out of the glass with a vibrant, carefree nose of wild blueberries, black raspberries, crushed black currants and boysenberries with lovely floral nuances of candied violets and rose hips plus touches of cedar chest and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, this is a Harlan that is incredibly light on its feet, with amazing intensity and energy, framed by very finely grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced. This should be one of the longer-lived wines coming out of the 2017 vintage. 97+"
97 Points Jeb Dunnuck - "The Grand Vin is the 2017 Harlan Estate, and this beauty just about jumps from the glass with its pure cassis and blackcurrant fruits as well as notes of tobacco, graphite, crushed stone, and spice. With a full-bodied, expansive mouthfeel, building, velvety tannins, and a layered, seamless style that offers way more pleasure than just about every other wine in the vintage, bottles can be enjoyed any time over the coming 20-25 years."
97 Points James Suckling - "Love the sage and mint undertones with currants and berries. Some lead pencil. Iodine. Medium to full body and very fine tannins. Lovely freshness. It’s a refined and gorgeous Harlan. Savory. Beautiful finish. Drinkable now, but better in 2022."
