Pleasant and reasonably balanced, I missed the fruit of a younger Harlan. Fine, smooth tannins. This was my third bottle of the 2000, and I felt that it was past its peak, if still a very nice wine. Full disclosure note: the "old wine" fans in my tasting group thought this was still too young to drink.

Tight, concentrated and compact, showing dried currant, berry and mineral character, with tannins that frame the flavors. Ends with a black cherry and blackberry fruitiness. This was a cool, drawn-out year.--Non-blind Harlan retrospective (2010). Drink now through 2016. 1,800

Dark fruit but tart with short finish. Not worth the price.

Medium black cherry red colored wine with thick and translucent legs. Aromas of slight caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, and light oak shadings. Slightly alcoholic on the palate with amorphous fruit and oak. Lacks structure and acidity is slightly elevated. Moderate tannins. A very primary and slightly simple wine ? very disappointing. The worst Harlan Estate ever produced. This wine should never have been released as Harlan Estate.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
