The 2005, which is again a wine dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, has a dense purple color, gorgeous structure, good acidity, but full-bodied power, a layered mouthfeel, and sweet oak (mostly Taransaud) that integrates beautifully into the black currant and blackberry fruit intermixed with espresso, licorice, and spice. This is another beauty, slightly more restrained and less flamboyant compared to 2004, but built for the long haul. This wine should age for 20-25 years. Just a stone’s throw down the hill from the Harlan Estate vineyard is a five-acre parcel of hillside vineyards, planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, owned by Tom and Kyle Futo. Formerly, this was the Oakford Estate Vineyard. The viticulture is overseen by the superstar in that field, David Abreu, and the winemaker is another renowned name, Mark Aubert. The first vintage to be released will be the 2004, which is only 100 cases, but then production jumps to 200 in 2005 and 500+ in 2006. Their goal is to produce just under 1,000 cases when everything comes into production. The site is beautiful, and there is considerable buzz about what’s going on.
