Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 6% Petite Sirah, 5% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot
95 Points from Jeb Dunnuck
Named after winemaker Eric Jensen's parents, the 2017 Harvey and Harriet is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It offers a richer, powerful style as well as Napa Cabernet-like notes of black and blue fruits, scorched earth, crushed rocks, and violets. Rich, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and voluptuous on the palate, it's more approachable than the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, but I wouldn't bet against it aging just as long.
94 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Harvey and Harriet is made up of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 6% Petite Sirah, 5% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot aged in 80% new French oak. It gives up wonderful crème de cassis, chocolate mint, kirsch, blackberry and black cherry jam aromas with a classy frame of vanilla and sweet baking spices plus sparks of graphite, cedar, flowers and tobacco leaf. The medium to full-bodied, silky palate features rich, plush, meaty black fruits with firm but finely woven tannins and just enough juicy freshness to lift the long, layered finish. This is great! It deserves more time in bottle, but it's drinking wonderfully straight out of the gate.

Opaque ruby. Powerful, smoke- and spice-accented black and blue fruit and candied violet aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a hint of candied rose with aeration. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering plush yet lively dark berry preserve, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors and building spiciness. The impressively long, velvety finish features an echo of sappy blue fruit and polished tannins that come in late.
This is a wine for those whose hands are familiar with hard work. Whose values are solid and whose integrity is their compass. Who know heartache and joy are two sides of the same coin and that laughter can be found in the chaos of building a life together. This is a wine for Harvey and Harriet, my parents. It’s also a wine for you. Made with honesty and without compromise, the way great wine should be.
