After covering the first new–vintage releases of Bordeaux wines for close to 40 years, Parker said that he was handing over to fellow Wine Advocate critic Neal Martin for the 2014 vintage.
In a posting on his website, Parker said Martin "will review the 2014 en primeur releases from Bordeaux".
Harlan Estate, owned by Bill Harlan, is located in the western hills of Oakville. Harlan is known for its commitment to creating a wine that is a California "First Growth," on par with those of the old world. The entire estate consists of 240 acres, including a homestead and plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
