2015 Harlan Estate ‘The Maiden’ Napa Valley [375mL, JS-96pts]

Tasting Notes:

96 points James Suckling

Incredible aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and walnut undertones. Underbrush, hints of cedar and sweet tobacco, too. Full-bodied, very structured and tannic. Yet, so polished and very, very beautiful. Great length and structure. Beautiful to drink now, but really well-structured for aging. (LPB)  (5/2018)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Moving to the two 2015s, the 2015 The Maiden is a rock star that’s better than most estate top wines. Giving up a full-bodied, sexy, beautifully layered style as well as tons of sweet cassis and blackberry fruit, it has ripe tannins, no hard edges, fruit galore, and a great finish.  (1/2019)

95 points Wine Advocate

There were very small yields in this vintage—about 50% of normal production. The 2015 The Maiden (bottled in early 2018) is deep garnet-purple colored with lovely notes of warm redcurrants, black raspberries and wild blueberries with touches of rose hip tea, tobacco, spice box and fragrant earth. The palate is full-bodied and concentrated with lovely grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and earthy. (LPB)  (10/2018)

95 points Wine Spectator

This has a solid, grippy edge from the start, with cast iron and warm stone accents guiding the core of steeped black currant and blackberry paste flavors along. Nice sage, sassafras and tobacco details fill in on the finish. Built for the cellar. (JM)  (10/2019)
