Harlan 2008 Harlan Estate
|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux Blend|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Espresso, mocha, dark red berries, rose petals and spices are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2008 Harlan Estate. The wine fleshes out beautifully in the glass as it shows off its class and true pedigree. This is a decidedly ripe, forward vintage, but in exchange the wine will drink well right out of the gate.
Winespectator / James Suckling (96)
Deliciously ripe, complex and aromatic, yet tight and closed, with dried currant, loamy earth, mocha, cedar, blueberry and plum flavors. The impressive finish shows detailed flavors and nuances. Full-blown, yet not as ripe as some Harlans.
