I have never been totally convinced by the 2000 Harlan Estate but now that it's in bottle it is a very fine offering. The problem is that it must be compared with the other Harlan Estate wines made to date. A Graves-like perfume of roasted coffee scorched earth black currants cedar and a hint of menthol emerge from this dense dark ruby/purple-colored 2000. Lighter than normal but medium to full-bodied and elegant with soft tannin as well as a silky precocious personality and texture it can be drunk now and over the next 12 years.

Subtle aromas of tobacco leaf dried herbs minerals earth and nutty oak with fruit in the background. Juicy and tightly wound displaying only moderate depth for Harlan Estate's flagship wine and yet this has sneaky density of flavor. With less baby fat than it displayed upon release its tongue-dusting tannins are more apparent today. There's no rush to drink this but I wonder how much it will gain in bottle from here.
