2003 Harlan Estate Cabernet - 95 pts! 
OWC 6 pak! The 2003 Harlan Estate is reminiscent of a top-notch Bordeaux such as La Mission Haut Brion married with an excellent Pauillac. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a smoky graphite white chocolate espresso and black currant-scented bouquet. Broad and rich with more noticeable rustic tannin than its older sibling this big rich Cabernet promises to age for 20-25 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
