95 points James Suckling
The purity of black fruit, black currants and blackberry is impressive, yet it remains subdued. Floral, ripe tobacco. Turns to spices such as cloves and Cameroon green pepper. Full-bodied, tight and compressed. Powerful yet polished and refined. The best Maiden ever. (1/2016)

More serious and concentrated, bigger and denser, the 2013 The Maiden is one of the strongest efforts, and possibly the best Maiden tasted to date. (RP) (10/2016)

The 2013 The Maiden is gorgeous. Deep, fleshy and expressive, but very much medium in body, the 2013 is pure finesse. Sweet floral and spice notes add attractive upper register, but it is the wine’s total sense of poise that truly stands out. The Maiden is another recent wine from Harlan Estate that reflects a move towards greater finesse. The 2013 is an absolutely exquisite Maiden. (AG) (12/2016)
