The Maiden 2002 Red (Napa Valley)

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.
