2016 Harlan Estate | Oakville, Napa Valley California 750ml



Harlan Estate has been described as a classic blend of great style, displaying remarkable color, great concentration, complexity and depth, with supple, well-integrated tannins; luscious with a very long finish, reflecting the unique characteristics of the Estate. Tempting now, but destined to last. | Harlan Estate

The quality of the 2016 Proprietary Red Wine shouldn't surprise anyone. This estate rarely misses a beat, and in a great vintage like 2016, they've made a perfect wine. Sporting a deep purple hue as well as extraordinary notes of creme de cassis, blackcurrants, herbes de Provence, tobacco, graphite...this beauty hits the palate with a deep, powerful, full-bodied style that has enough structure to warrant a decade of cellaring. The purity is off the charts, it builds incrementally on the palate, and has a finish that won't quit. Reminding me a little of the 2013, yet with a touch more elegance, do your best to hide bottles for at least 5-7 years and it's going to keep for 30-40 years more. | 100 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

A wine of tremendous breeding and pure stature, the 2016 Harlan Estate reaches dizzying heights of profound beauty. All the elements simply fall into place in an effortless, elegant Harlan Estate that really captures the essence of the year. Sweet tobacco, spice, menthol and mocha overtones give the 2016 beguiling aromatic presence to match its layered, sumptuous personality. More than anything else, the 2016 is a fabulous example of the Harlan Estate of today, an era in which finesse is just as prized as intensity. | 98 points, Antonio Galloni for Vinous

The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Harlan Estate comes charging out of the glass, brandishing bold, opulent blackberry pie, warm cassis and blueberry preserves notes with hints of cigar box, Indian spices, crushed rocks and forest floor plus fragrant accents of lavender and black tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, with a solid line of super ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the layer upon layer of savory and earth-inspired notions, finishing on a lingering mineral note. Impressively structured, incredibly nuanced and possessing all this latent tension, this brazen beauty is set to live for a good 60 years and possibly more! | 100 points, Lisa Perotti-Brown for The Wine Advocate

This is so tight and vibrant with a huge amount of detail and precision, coupled with density and brightness, superb length and class. The tannins are horizontal and so polished. The most refined, harmonious and focused Harlan ever? Subtle strength in this wine. You can drink it now or age it for years ahead. | 100 points, James Suckling for jamessuckling.com
