Issue Issue 132

($110) Full, deep ruby. Explosive aromas of red- and blackcurrant, tobacco, minerals and menthol. Sweet and fine-grained, with terrific fruit intensity and balance for a second wine-and a sense of completeness. Vinous, ripely tannic and long, but the tannins of the 2005 are more refined.

I was blown away by the 2004 The Maiden, which out of bottle is even better than it was from barrel. This wine exhibits a rather flamboyant scorched earth, lead pencil, incense, licorice, and blackberry and cassis-scented nose and flavors. The wine has superb concentration and is opulent, fleshy, and very much in keeping with the style of the vintage. Despite its accessibility, I suspect this wine will drink well for at least two decades.

Drink Dates 2009-2020

Big, dark, rich, intense and firmly tannic, with a massive, layered core of spicy currant, mocha, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's deep and concentrated, unfolding with a remarkable measure of grace and finesse.

Opened and double-decanted 3 hours prior to drinking. Very dark red/black color. Nose was a bit unusual - some fruit, but also some vegetal and mint aromas. I found it enjoyable and intriguing, but most of the tasters were not fond of its character. A big wine with some black fruit flavors, but also quite a bit of oak, i.e. vanilla and peppery notes. I actually liked this wine more for its aromas rather than flavors. This wine may get a bit better over next few years, but I don't think by much. I much preferred the 2005 Maiden to this 2004.

Bright fruit (maybe cherry) along with nice complexity and finish. Very good, but I was hoping for a little more firmness with the fruit. None of the cedar I've noticed with other Harlan wines.

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.
