(1999 Vintage) This is the feminine side of Harlan with floral aromatics on the nose with less density and concentration on the palate. It is a pretty wine with delicate layers and beautiful detail.
International Wine CellarGood deep ruby-red. Blackcurrant, minerals, graphite, mocha and leather on the nose. Sweet and tightly wound, with a violet topnote and terrific depth of flavor. This powerfully structured wine has plenty of meat on its bones. The tannins are huge but refined. This must be among the three or four longest wines of the vintage, with the violet quality persisting on the aftertaste.
