Harlan Estate Proprietary Red 2002, 750mL (WA100, WS99) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Harlan Estate Proprietary Red

750mL

Vintage: 2002
Region: US
Appellation: Oakville, Napa

WA100, WS99
Rated 100 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The extraordinary Harlan Estate, which I awarded 100 points seven years ago, offers no justifiable reason to doubt its perfect score. It is still a baby, with an inky purple color and notes of smoky camphor intermixed with creme de cassis, Asian soy and a hint of cedar beginning to emerge as well as some espresso and subtle damp forest floor notes. The wine has awesome intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, a skyscraper-like texture, and a finish that goes on for close to a minute. This is a perfect wine, still youthful and young, and not even in full adolescence as of 2012. It has 40 or more years ahead of it, but should hit its plateau of full maturity in another 5-10 years. It is certainly one of the most showy , flamboyant and remarkable Harlan Estates made to date. (More recently, the 2007 tends to resemble this wine more than any other vintage I can think of.) Kudos to Bill Harlan!` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
