2001 Harlan Estate Cabernet Magnum - 100 Pts!
Rivaling the 1994 and 1997 the 2001 Harlan Estate is a perfect wine for my palate. Tasted on four separate occasions this offering which spent 28 months in oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered is an extraordinary effort that comes across as a hypothetical blend of Mouton-Rothschild La Mission-Haut-Brion and Montrose. A synthesis in style between the more elegant delineated structured 1994 and the port-like over-the-top viscous 1997 this extraordinary 2001 was the "wine of my trip" even though I had already had it from bottle several months earlier. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a stupendous bouquet of lead pencil shavings interwoven with coffee new saddle leather melted licorice cedarwood black currant liqueur and violets. Explosive richness a marvelous full-bodied texture and fabulous purity concentration complexity and nobleness are the stuff of legends. RP
