Tasting Notes

WA97

The 2009 Promontory is a magnificent Bordeaux-styled red offering up notes of burning embers, scorched earth (not terribly dissimilar from a top Pessac-Leognan such as La Mission Haut-Brion), black fruits, loamy undertones of minerality, and hints of camphor and background oak. Dense, masculine, rich and full, this 2009 is built for the long-term, although for a 2009, the tannins are remarkably well-integrated, giving the wine definition and structure. This 2009 should age for 25+ years.

The Winery

Promontory

They are nearly all Cabernet Sauvignon with touches of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot in them, and probably the best way to compare them to the wines of Harlan Estate or the Bond single-vineyard projects is to describe them as more like a Napa version of a great St-Estèphe such as Château Montrose thanks to their spicy, earthy characteristics, although I’m not suggesting there is any of the rusticity that one might expect from these mountain terroirs.
-Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

No one was surprised when one of the most historic vintners in Napa Valley, Bill Harlan, launched a new winery in 2009. When he discovered a unique piece of property in the mid-1980s in between Oakville and Yountville, Harlan became mesmerized with this isolated location and knew it would eventually become Promontory. By 2010, Harlan purchased just under 900 acres of land as part of his ‘200 year plan.’ Taking points from some of Europe’s most successful long running wine families, the Harlans were inspired to create several unique experiences at their wineries and to pass on leadership and wisdom to future generations within the family. With that being said Bill’s son, Will Harlan, is the Estate Director for Promontory and oversees everything from farming methods to hospitality in the tasting room. These wines reflect the uncompromising quality of Napa Valley established through tradition and a revolution of an entire family’s philosophy.
