Lot #550. Harlan Estate 1997

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"The 1997 Harlan Estate is one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines I have ever tasted. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this enormously-endowed, profoundly rich wine must be tasted to be believed. Opaque purple-colored, it boasts spectacular, soaring aromatics of vanilla, minerals, coffee, blackberries, licorice, and cassis. In the mouth, layer after layer unfold powerfully yet gently. Acidity, tannin, and alcohol are well-balanced by the wine's unreal richness and singular personality. The finish exceeds one minute." Wine Advocate # 132, Dec 2000
Provenance: The Brioche Cellar
Notes: Very lightly stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $900
