1995 Harlan Estate Magnum - 99 pts!

Harlan Estate is one of Napa's most prominent wine producers, self-styled as a Napa "first growth". The vineyard is located in the Oakville AVA, in the hills above Martha's Vineyard (Heitz Cellar) and To Kalon (Robert Mondavi), just north of Napa town itself. Its Cabernet Sauvignon-based flagship wine is one of California's most sought-after wines, regularly commanding prices exceeding $1000 per bottle.

The estate was founded in 1984 by property developer William Harlan, who had cut his teeth at the Merryvale winery and Meadowood lodge before buying 240 acres (97 hectares) of land in the Oakville hills. Some 40 acres (16ha) of this was cleared for vineyards – mostly planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, but with some Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Harlan Estate's first commercial vintage was the 1990, which was released in 1996 with a then-expensive price tag of $65 a bottle. Since then, the estate has cemented itself as a cult wine producer, with five vintages achieving 100-point scores from Robert Parker. In addition to the flagship red, Harlan Estate also makes a second wine, The Maiden.

Rating RP99 - The 1995 Proprietary Red Wine is almost as perfect as the 1994. It has gotten even better in the bottle and remains one of the most remarkable young Cabernet Sauvignons I have tasted. The wine a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot was aged in 100% new oak which adds subtle pain grille/toasty scents. This opaque purple-colored Cabernet offers up a nose of smoke coffee beans black and blue fruits minerals and roasted herbs. It is extremely full-bodied with spectacular purity exquisite equilibrium and a seamless personality with everything in total harmony. The finish lasts for more than 40 seconds. This extravagantly rich profoundly complex 1995 will give its 1994 sibling a run for its money. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2027. RP
