Weingut über: Harlan Estate

-- Weingut: The first impression is one of gravity and emotion, evoking a courageous chapter in the history of this place. The nose of the 2017 is dark, yet vivid, with hints of fresh earth underfoot, joined with aromas of the native flora in the woodlands surrounding the vineyards. On the palate, one discovers just enough generosity to be drawn in and, as it lingers, braids of energetic acidity, woven around a dark and provocative core, begin to loosen and yield to the wine’s purity. The finish unfolds to reveal both density and a tannin resolution that become increasingly clear with each consecutive layer. 2017 Harlan Estate is a wine of depth and passion, and will reward patience as it emerges from the tempestuous nature of its birth; yet its most inspiring attribute is, perhaps, its capacity for transcendence.


Parker über: Harlan Estate

-- Parker: Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Harlan Estate needs a little coaxing to reveal captivating iron ore, red currant jelly, cloves and crushed rocks scents with a core of warm cassis, Black Forest cake and boysenberries plus a waft of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, grainy texture with a lively backbone and loads of earthy layers, long and mineral laced. This should be one of the longer-lived wines coming out of the 2017 vintage. 97+/100


Suckling über: Harlan Estate

-- Suckling: Love the sage and mint undertones with currants and berries. Some lead pencil. Iodine. Medium to full body and very fine tannins. Lovely freshness. It’s a refined and gorgeous Harlan. Savory. Beautiful finish. Drinkable now, but better in 2022. 97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Harlan Estate

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The Grand Vin is the 2017 Harlan Estate, and this beauty just about jumps from the glass with its pure cassis and blackcurrant fruits as well as notes of tobacco, graphite, crushed stone, and spice. With a full-bodied, expansive mouthfeel, building, velvety tannins, and a layered, seamless style that offers way more pleasure than just about every other wine in the vintage, bottles can be enjoyed any time over the coming 20-25 years. 97/100
