The opaque purple-colored 1996 Harlan Estate reveals extraordinary intensity a spicy black currant tobacco cedar and fruit cake-scented bouquet full body a texture oozing with glycerin and concentrated fruit and moderate tannin in the blockbuster finish. It is one of the most concentrated and complete red wines one could hope to taste. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.

Good red-ruby. Wild aromas of currant game earth and mothballs with a bit of leathery funk. Highly concentrated and very ripe with a slightly chunky texture and a distinctly chewy quality. But this also boasts sweet fruit... Good red-ruby. Wild aromas of currant game earth and mothballs with a bit of leathery funk. Highly concentrated and very ripe with a slightly chunky texture and a distinctly chewy quality. But this also boasts sweet fruit and lovely violet lift. Finishes with substantial building tannins and plenty of thrust.
