The Promontory Red is the most recent fine wine project of the great Bill Harlan, who founded the Harlan Estate in 1984 in the stunning western hills of Oakville, above the fabled Oakville benchlands, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The Wine Spectator has called the estate a 'Californian grand cru.'

“Deep garnet-purple in color, it has sprung to life since I last tasted it, prancing out of the glass with showy red currant jelly, black cherry compote and warm cassis notes plus hints of cinnamon toast, wilted roses, unsmoked cigars and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate is rich and impactful, featuring layer upon layer of red and black fruits with loads of mineral sparks. The structure is rock-solid with firm, rugged tannins that are beginning to come into line with the flamboyant fruit, finishing with great length and a lively lift.."
