2011 Harlan Estate The Maiden
Red Bordeaux Blend
- Napa Valley
Community Tasting Notes 7

December 25, 2016 - Moderately saturated ruby hue. Aromas of blackberry, cherry, tobacco, and vanilla with a slight floral lift. Nice texture on the palate, juicy with firm acidity and dusty tannins providing a good backbone leading to a somewhat mineral finish.

November 5, 2016 - Oak on the nose. In a good Way. Leather and old iron. Fresh on the palate. Dark fruits, tobacco and sandal woods. Nice to try the 2011

October 15, 2016 - My first Maiden. Nice old world Bordeaux style. Medium body. Pretty floral and mineral notes, red and blue fruit. Very nice wine but poor QPR. I've had similar quality Bordeaux at half the price.

September 5, 2016 - Blackberry, fig and black cherry make a surprise showing. The ripeness on the nose is surprising for 2011. Medium bodied, finesse styled, with a dusty, cocoa, herb and cherry tinged finish. This is already drinking at close to peak.

August 27, 2016 - Tasted side by side with the '09 Colgin IX - this was good but fell a bit short by comparison. This still felt a bit more primary and less elegant. A very well made wine featuring dark fruits and cocoa dust. Will be interesting to taste this with more bottle age.
