The first Hardin Cabernet Sauvignon (2003) was discovered by Doug on a trip to California. The wine was sourced from one of Napa Valley's long time "cult" producers. Doug found himself in Napa at the right time, and was able to taste and buy a small lot of this top, top quality wine.
Following the blow-out success of the first effort, Doug has continued to put together a stellar follow-up throughout the years, the 2010 being Hardin's seventh vintage.
At long last the Hardin Napa Valley Cabernet 2010 is on its way! We just tasted a sample and it’s already showing beautifully. The wine is opaque with classic aromas of black fruits, tobacco and cedar. On the palate it is rich and mouth-filling balanced by beautiful ripe tannins and acidity giving the wine lift. It has a core of blackberry and cassis fruits, tobacco and a hint of very well integrated oak.
This is very impressive juice that continues to offer tremendous value for Napa Cab!
