Issue Issue 126

Bright, deep ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, redcurrant, menthol and red licorice. Sweet, dense and fine-grained, with lovely floral lift. Nicely ripe for the year. Finishes with firm, lush, building tannins. This needs a couple more years in the bottle. (The 2004 was being blended on the day of my tasting.)

Readers looking for more immediate gratification should seek out the seductive, sexy 2003 The Maiden. It offers lots of cedarwood, white chocolate, black currant and damp forest notes in a medium to full-bodied, round, generous style with all the oak absorbed. The acidity provides good vibrancy, but no tartness, and the tannins are not astringent. This spicy, open-knit, fleshy 2003 is showing extremely well at present. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Still very big and will drink well for years. Lots of layers of fruit. Evolved in glass over several hours.

An excellent wine. Drank with the Podells. They loved it, as did we.

Big, dark red. Concentrated aromas and flavors of cassis, blueberries, tobacco and cedar. Some smokiness. Long

A good wine but not the 2002. I like the Maiden, sometimes more than the regular Harlan.

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.
