2002 Harlan Maiden - 94 pts! 
Harlan Estate is one of Napa's most prominent wine producers, self-styled as a Napa "first growth" and one of the five original CultWines. 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.

Founded in 1984, Harlan Estate is a winegrowing estate in the western hills of Oakville, California – in the heart of the Napa Valley. Consisting of 240 acres (97 ha) of natural splendor set above the fabled Oakville benchlands, the property rises in elevation from 225 to 1,225 feet (68 to 374 m) above sea level.

"If we can enrich people's lives, and just maybe inspire them to do something beyond what they might otherwise have done, that brings us great satisfaction. Our purpose is to help our patrons to have an even more enjoyable and healthy life." William Harlan

Rating RP94 - Sweet deep black currant fruit espresso licorice graphite and earth aromas emerge from the dense ruby/purple-colored 2002 The Maiden which cascades over the palate without a hard edge. Like its bigger sibling it's impossible to resist at present but promises to age well for 15 years. Bill Harlan winemaker Bob Levy and consulting oenologist Michel Rolland have achieved spectacular results in an amazingly short time at this estate in the western hills overlooking the Oakville corridor. The introduction of a second wine The Maiden has allowed this team to ratchet up the level of the grand cru. From over 40 acres of vineyard only 1500-1600 cases of Harlan Estate and 800 cases of The Maiden are produced. In order to keep quality at such an extraordinary level I suspect production will never go much higher. RP
