Elevating Wine Artistry: The 2013 Harlan Estate

At the heart of Napa Valley, the 2013 Harlan Estate emerges as a testament to the passion and precision of its creators. Crafted by the renowned Harlan Estate winery, this vintage weaves together a rich history, exceptional varietals, and meticulous production attributes to deliver a wine experience that transcends the ordinary.

A Legacy Unveiled
The story of Harlan Estate is one etched in dedication and vision. Founded by Bill Harlan in the 1980s, this estate has consistently pushed the boundaries of winemaking. The 2013 vintage is a reflection of this legacy, encapsulating decades of expertise and a relentless pursuit of excellence.

The Harmony of Varietals
At the core of the 2013 Harlan Estate is the noble Cabernet Sauvignon, celebrated for its intricate and profound flavors. Yet what sets this wine apart is its harmonious blend with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot.

Production Mastery
Crafting the 2013 Harlan Estate demands unwavering precision. Grapes are hand-harvested to ensure only the most exceptional fruit finds its way into the winery. A stringent sorting process further refines the selection.

Fermentation unfolds in small lots, permitting close supervision and gentle flavor extraction. The final touch is aging in French oak barrels, where the wine matures gracefully, attaining complexity and depth.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

As I predicted last year, the 2013 Harlan Estate is one of their all-time greats, although they have had many of them, starting with the 1991, followed by 1994, 1995, 1997 (although controversial in some circles), 2001, 2002, 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2012. This great first-growth property, with aspirations to produce the finest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine made in the New World, has given us a wine that has it all in 2013. Dense purple to the rim, with notes of espresso, white chocolate, mocha, blackberry, cassis, and cedar wood, the wine is full-bodied, opulent, but also structured, pure and incredibly long (well past a minute aftertaste). It is probably closest in personality and overall character to the compelling 2001, which is still a youthful wine at age 15. Drink it over the next 50+ years. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr. Issue date: October 28, 2016. Drinking window: 2016-2066.

The 2013 Harlan Estate has really shut down since I tasted it from barrel a year ago. Dark, powerful and brooding, with plenty of tannic grip, the 2013 is a wine to buy and forget about for at least a few years. Black fruit, graphite, violet smoke and licorice are some of the signatures, but, here, too, the wine belongs to the future. I wouldn't dream of opening a bottle before its tenth birthday. The Harlan Estate is one of the most finessed - if not the most finessed 2013 - readers will taste. This is a stunningly beautiful, vivid wine. Reviewed by Antonio Galloni. Tasting date: October 2016. Drinking window: 2020-2038.
