2017 Harlan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville
From our door to yours, we bring you the 2017 vintage of Harlan Estate. With three 97pt scores from the Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck, and James Suckling we know this one will go fast. Wine Advocate describes this perfection as a “vibrant, carefree nose of wild blueberries, black raspberries, crushed black currants and boysenberries with lovely floral nuances of candied violets and rose hips plus touches of cedar chest and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, this is a Harlan that is incredibly light on its feet, with amazing intensity and energy, framed by very finely grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and mineral-laced.”

If you don’t know, Harlan Estate was established in 1984 by William Harlan in the western hills of Oakville. He owns 240 acres of hillside property, of which only 15% are planted to vine. His vineyards were quite literally carved into the hills where the forest meets the valley floor. Harlan uncovered terroir that is unlike anything else in the world, a combination of volcanic and sedimentary bedrock. The vines are terraced or closely spaced on spare soils over fractured rock; vertical trellis with shoot positioning, 360º of exposition. It’s a perfect place for vines and according to many master sommeliers and critics around the world “a near-perfect wine.” Grab a bottle or 3 and let us know what you think.
