    July 8, 2011 - A delightfully rich wine. Four years from the last CT tasting note and well worth the wait! Loaded with fresh red fruits. toasted oak, and cassis. Fruit exploding on the palate and refuses to wane. Wow! I just love this wine. Based on the reviews below nobody had any idea how good this wine might become. This is quintessential Napa Cabernet and a strong argument that these quality Napa cabs should not be evaluated until they have aged comensurate to that which is allowed classified Bordeaux before they are given such lofty scores.

    September 7, 2007 - Very disappointed...and totally agree with the CT tasting notes. The finish was abrupt and slightly sour following a muted mid palate of plum, dark cherries, and graphite. I am surprised that the 2003's for Harris are so much better in quality then the '02's.

    March 16, 2007 - The deep purple appearance was the high point for me. Ok, but I wasn't rushing back for more.

    December 13, 2006 - A perfectly fine bottle of wine with nice dark fruit concentration and the stuffing for aging. That said, this bottle in no way merits the price demanded by the winery. It holds its own against $35-$50 bottles, but certainly can't compete with the big boys.

    November 13, 2006 - opened and decanted the Harris at 4pm. not much going on at first. after about 30 minutes there was some chocolate and fig but that went away. then after about 4 hours a nice blend of dark plum and black cherry evolved on the nose... not powerful but very nice. this carried through in the taste as well. continued to drink nicely and finished it about 10:30pm. much better showing that the Treva's last year although still tentative... time helps i guess

    when the flavors hit they were very nice, but you had to chase them...
