Located in the hills to the west of Oakville in California, Harlan Estate produces wines from traditional Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernets, Merlot and Petit Verdot. This family-run estate was founded by Bill Harlan. Advised by oenologist Michel Rolland, the estate produces a main cuvée as well as an excellent second wine called The Maiden. The Napa Valley is a wine-growing region in Napa county, California. It is deemed to be one of the United States' most prestigious wine-producing areas with a heritage that dates back to the 19th century. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Charles Krug was the first to create a winery in the region in 1861. Since then, many leading French names have joined him, including Moueix, Rothschild, Moët et Chandon, Taittinger and Mumm.
About the cuvée
Low yields and long élevages are the keywords at this domain. This cuvée has an intense and complex bouquet of minerality, ripe black fruits and smoky notes. Its density and opulence are lifted by an intense fruitiness. Superb after twenty years in the cellar!
