The individual lots of the 2008 vintage are consistently impressive and opulent. Aged in French oak barrels in the second-year cellar, they provide a wealth of very high-quality components for blending.

Harlan’s second wine, The Maiden, is marvelous in 2005. Ripe, opulent fruit and notes of unsmoked high class cigar tobacco intermixed with creme de cassis, coffee, and asphalt are present in this round, superbly textured, rich, full-bodied, silky, beautifully wrought wine. It will drink well for 15+ years.
Good full medium ruby. Sappy aromas of dark fruits, spicy oak and minerals. Wonderfully juicy and lively on the palate, with floral and mineral elements serving to frame and lift the dark fruit flavors. Very firmly built wine with terrific vinosity and balance. Almost too good for a second wine.
