Harlan Estate

Founded in 1984 in the western hills of Oakville, Napa Valley, Harlan Estate is one of the fabled “Cult Cabs” that came of age in the 1990s. Along with such Cult Cabs as Screaming Eagle, Abreu, Araujo and Colgin, Harlan helped set the bar for extremely rich, complex and hard-to-acquire California Cabs. Harlan Estate founder William Harlan has said that part of his mission in founding the winery was “to create a first growth of California.” Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that Harlan wines possess “all the elements of greatness – individuality, power combined with elegance, extraordinary complexity, remarkable aging potential and compelling richness without ponderousness.” The estate’s 36 acres of vineyards are planted in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. About 1,800 to 2,000 cases of Harlan Estate are produced annually. Also produced annually are 10,000 bottles of The Maiden, a Cabernet Sauvignon.
