    July 17, 2020 - Dirt, rusty, bark, berries and fruit. Medicinal. Leather nose, ripe fruit, strawberries, amazing pond-like nose that reminds me of DRC.

    September 26, 2019 - Mesmerising. Poured by Don Weaver at the US embassy. Perfect balance of meatiness, ultra seductive fruit, rich, velvety and long. Unreal

    August 15, 2019 - Napa with friends; 8/15/2019-8/18/2019 (Napa, CA): Tasted at Harlan Estate. My favorite of the wines tasted today and clearly the most mature and in the drinking window. This is a powerful and concentrated in style, but achieves nice balance between the fruit while maintaining enough acidity to provide some energy on the palate. More notes of forest floor, dried leaves come through starting at mid palate and the fruit here picks up some red tones along with black fruit.

    (Harlan Estate) This wine has a pronounced nose of ripe blueberry, mocha, and grilled coffee and a velvety, full texture that is at once silky and massive. It has great elegance in spite of its size. According to director Don Weaver, the '05 Harlan is a classic expression of the estate. Winery Spotlight: Harlan Estate
