Auction 15 | Lot No. 77
JP Harbison Wines
5 cases produced
The 2009 JP Harbison Estate Cabernet
Sauvignon is from our first full harvest
(11 tons) from our vineyard nestled in the
heart of Oakville’s Vaca Ridges and red rocky
soils. This special lot for Premiere Napa Valley
will be blended from a single block only.
The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon showcases
Oakville’s telltale complexity of flavor. Up
front, the aromatics are classic blackberry
and ripe cherry, but as the wine opens up,
it reveals scents of rich tobacco and freshly
cut cedar. On the palate, the wine has the
verve that comes from being grown in a
location that consists of nothing but rocks
and the occasional handful of soil. It starts
with a beam of fruit that makes it a perfect
pairing for roasted meats as it will never be
ponderous. The acidity is balanced out by
firm but seductive tannins that provide the
wine with richness and depth.
Aged in 100% new French oak for 22 to 24 months.
- Wine is unfiltered
- Single vineyard wine
- Sustainably produced
- Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
