RP94 "Sweet, deep black currant fruit, espresso, licorice, graphite, and earth aromas emerge from the dense, ruby/purple-colored 2002 The Maiden, which cascades over the palate without a hard edge. Like its bigger sibling, it?s impossible to resist at present, but promises to age well for 15 years." RP Dec 2005

"Low cluster weights resulted in tiny yields and extraordinary concentration at Harlan Estate in 2002 and again in 2003. According to winemaker Bob Levy, the cabernet clusters weighed, on average, less than three ounces in 2002, and the ultimate yield here was less than a ton of fruit per acre. The result is one of the most extraordinary young California cabernets I have ever tasted." ST for VM May 2005
