2001 Harlan Estate, The Maiden, Napa Valley, Bottle (750ml)

Shop 'In Stock' Wines
"The 2001 The Maiden’s dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a lovely bouquet of melted chocolate, espresso roast, black currants, berries, licorice, and underbrush. This full-bodied, well-balanced, opulent second wine is as good as many California producer’s primary cuvee. Its sweet, supple tannin and forward personality suggest consuming it over the next 10-15 years." RP Feb 2005

"I find it ironic that at a time when so many California wineries seem to be trying to imitate the 1997 Harlan Estate bottling, the sophisticated winemaking team at Harlan Estate now views this extremely rich, port-like wine as the extreme example among its extraordinary range of vintages. Current vintages at this elite hillside property above Oakville are as rich and deep as ever, but manage, uncannily, to retain inner-mouth vibrancy. From Bill Harlan and the same winemaking team of Bob Levy and superconsultant Michel Rolland, later in this issue." ST for VM May 2004
