2002 Harlan "The Maiden" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1022987 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Sweet, deep black currant fruit, espresso, licorice, graphite, and earth aromas emerge from the dense, ruby/purple-colored 2002 The Maiden, which cascades over the palate without a hard edge. Like its bigger sibling, it’s impossible to resist at present, but promises to age well for 15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2005)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From the home vineyard in the Oakville foothills, this little sister to Harlan Estate is very similar to it. The structure is superb, with a classic elegance of tannins and acids. The flavors are just enormous, all about chocolate fudge, crème de cassis and cherry cola, yet the wine is dry and crisp. There’s something sensual and sexy about this claret, a completely nourishing wine that provides endless pleasure. At this price, it’s a value compared to Harlan Estate. Inner quote mark (9/2006)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full ruby-red. Superripe aromas of sweet, sappy berries; not roasted. Lush, sweet and sappy, with compelling freshness and depth of sappy fruit. This has terrific early appeal as well as a firm structure to support further development in bottle. Finishes with big, chewy, tongue-dusting tannins and superb lingering sweetness of dark berry fruit. The best Maiden vintage yet. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2005)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very rich and concentrated, racy at points, with dried currant, loamy earth and savory dried herb notes. Drying on the finish, yet the flavors run deep and persistent. Drink now through 2020. (JL, Web Only-2012) Inner quote mark
