Wine Advocate Review
Rated 93
The 2021 Red Blend is composed of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 12% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 7% Malbec, 2% Grenache and 2% Cabernet Franc matured for 18 months in 50% new French oak. It has a nose of red and black currants, tobacco, oolong tea leaves, potpourri and mossy bark. The palate is medium-bodied, chalky and fresh with layered, nuanced flavors and a long, fragrant finish. This offers great quality for its modest price. Drink 2024-2034.

Wine Tasting Notes
Harvey & Harriet wines were created with a sense of whimsy. Inspired by a couple who nurtured their family with an overflow of affection, imagination, and a touch of mischievousness. Embracing the carefree nature of a life without obligations and embracing the notion of life as a joyful playground. Indulge in a sip and rediscover the carefree spirit of yesteryears.

The vintage is not the end of the impressive rise of Harvey & Harriet Red Blend. This wine continues to impress with its rich and intricate flavors of blackberry, fig, and currant. Its deep ruby color is complemented by a palate that showcases cocoa, spice, brown sugar, and leather. The wine's remarkable density, refined tannins, and vibrant finish make it a true crowd-pleaser. It has been aged for 18 months in 50% New French Oak, adding to its complexity. Whether you choose to showcase this wine at your next gathering or save it for a special occasion, you will undoubtedly be rewarded.

    Loved this wine!

    I loved this wine and feel the wine critic's review fit, not the best red I've had but I really enjoyed it.

    Incredibly Overrated

    Posted by Wine me on Jul 21st 2020

    Saw this wine pop up in an email and noticed the high ratings from fairly reputable sources. Very suspicious price point for a brand new release with 95 points and already being liquidated by an independent seller. Bought a bottle and did a tasting in the parking lot before I purchased a case as intended. I just sensed something wasn’t right about these being so inexpensive, highly rated, brand new release, and being sold at a discount. There is a hint of an evolving nose on this, but it’s got so many different reds in it, this should burst with fragrance. Took a sip and nope. Not good. Tasted like inexpensive cab blended with tea. Let it breathe in the glass for about 15 minutes, nose a little more pleasing, took another sip, and it tasted like a tannic $7 bottle of inexpensive red table wine. I have had house reds at chain Italian restaurants that were more pleasing. Perfect example of why ratings from barrel tastings can be way off. Three hours later shared the rest of opened bottle with spouse. She reacted like I’d spiked her wine with orange juice. If you have a cellar, maybe an inexpensive science project to see how it ages, but otherwise it’s just not a very nice bottle of wine.
