The 2012 Harlan Estate is reminiscent of their 2002. Probably a candidate for perfection with another 4-5 years of bottle age, the wine is inky plum/purple to the rim and offers a gorgeous nose of scorched earth, blackberry and cassis, forest floor, and a floral, lavender-like component followed by deep, opulent, majestic flavors that caress the palate with high but sweet tannin. This is relatively evolved, and supple and voluptuous for a young Harlan estate – hence the comparison with their compelling 2002. This wine can be drunk in several years and is likely another candidate for 30-50 years of cellaring.
This shows incredible lavendar aromas with Proven?al undertones of violets and dark fruits such as blueberries and blackberries. Full body and ultra-fine tannins that build on the finish. It really comes on with a rolling tannin structure. Some walnut undertones. A fresh and bright Harlan. Tightly wound. A muscular and elegant wine with superb tone. This wine has levity, as the winemaker likes to say.
