Harlan Estate Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley the Maiden 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine Spectator: Tightly wound, firm and concentrated, with a chewy core of dried currant, cedar, anise and mineral, yet for all its austerity there's a wonderful beam of ripe dark fruit that gains depth, nuance and length. Impressive for its structure and depth. Best from 2010 through 2017. 1,319 cases made. (11/15/09)

Harlan Estate:
Set in the western hills of Oakville, rising above the tabled Napa Valley benchlands, the estate is over 240 acres of natural .splendor; oak-studded knolls and valleys, roughly fifteen percent of which are under vine, planted to the classic varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdoc. But more than that it is a family homestead; a place of great inspiration, carved from the raw land, built for generations.

Melbury comes from a "Grand Cru" vineyard, hillside estate located northeast of Rutherford. Deep concentration of red and black fruit. Full of New World finesse.

The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2006 The Maiden reveals notes of coffee, damp earth, black currants, and smoky black cherries. In keeping with the vintage character, it is slightly more tannic, angular, and austere than the 2005. While it will not be as ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2006 Harlan Estate The Maiden 750ml

If we could split this bottle in 3, we'd do so cause there's not enough to go around. We got a mere case of this rare red from Harlan. Melbury comes from a "Grand Cru" vineyard, hillside estate located northeast of Rutherford. Deep concentration of red and black fruit. Full of New World finesse.
