The Harlan Estate 2018 is an extraordinary wine that showcases the essence of its vintage. Its captivating color is deep and rich, inviting the senses to explore further. On the nose, an array of aromas unfolds, with blackberries, dark cherries, and cassis taking center stage, accompanied by notes of violets, graphite, and hints of baking spices. The palate is an expression of elegance and power, with velvety tannins and a seamless texture. Ripe black fruits, cocoa, and roasted coffee beans dance harmoniously on the palate, creating a symphony of flavors. The wine's exceptional length and complexity on the finish leave a lasting impression, with nuances of dark chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of earthiness. With its impeccable balance and remarkable depth, the Harlan Estate 2018 is a true masterpiece that embodies the estate's commitment to crafting wines of exceptional quality. This vintage has the potential to age gracefully, rewarding those who choose to cellar it with even greater depth and complexity over time.

Robert Parker - (97-100) Points

"The 2018 Harlan Estate was tasted as a barrel sample, to be bottled in March. Deep garnet-purple in color, it needs a fair bit of swirling to reveal a wonderfully fragrant perfume of blueberry pie, chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and black currant pastilles with hints of cumin seed, rose oil and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, the taut, grainy-textured palate delivers remarkable energy with compelling tension and a long, graceful, earth-laced finish."

Antonio Galloni - 98+ Points

"The 2018 Harlan Estate is deep, plush and full of potential. But potential is the key word here, as the 2018 is also very reticent today. Its depth, power and pedigree are all obviously apparent. It is an atypical wine for Napa, as the acids, tannin and structure are all pretty prominent. Hints of black cherry, gravel, spice, menthol and lavender gradually open with some coaxing. The 2018 is a remarkable wine. I remember tasting it for the first time in Spring 2019, when it came across as a bit light. Perhaps that was a reflection of early blending and a wine that had not bounced back from that. Since then, the 2018 has gained in richness and volume, while retaining the finessed style that is such a signature here these days."
