As to the reds, the 2019 Harvey and Harriet can be thought of as the more approachable, lush red in the lineup, and it always seems more black fruit-driven than the straight Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberries, sweet tobacco, cedar, and some floral violet nuances define the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a beautiful texture and silky tannins. It's a smoking value, and while it has plenty of up-front charm, it certainly has a decade or more of overall longevity.
Wine Tasting Notes
Harvey and Harriet is the Bordeaux blend created by Eric Jensen of Booker Vineyard, in an attempt to make a wine that his parents would love and could aord. It is a wine that's made by hard work, the best vineyard sites, the best barrels, the best team and of course no additives or concentrates. A world class wine for everyone who appreciates high quality without the high price tag.
At first blush, an exuberant bouquet of candied blueberries, blackberries, jasmine, and orange blossoms jumps out of the glass and demands full attention. Underneath the fruits and flowers lay warm scents of brioche, cocoa and baking spices. The taster is then rewarded with intense cherry, mixed berry and pluot, followed by caramel and espresso. The overall sensation is sublime bliss on the palate as the elegant finish slowly fades away.
