94 points: Harvey & Harriet Paso Robles Red Blend is a full-bodied red wine with aromas of vanilla, black fruits, and dark chocolate. This California wine is delicious and smooth with an enjoyable dry finish.

Winery Notes: Eric Jensen of Booker Vineyard and My Favorite Neighbor created this wine in honor of his parents. In a world of pricey Cabernet blends, Eric’s hardworking, honest, salt-of-the-earth parents would have never been able to drink a decent wine. This is meant to be your every-day drinker. This Bordeaux style blend sources from the best vineyard sites, uses the best barrels, and the best team in winemaking.

Wine Advocate: "Deep ruby-purple, the 2019 Harvey & Harriet has beguiling crushed red and black cherries, tar, coffee beans and dark spicy and savory accents on the nose. Full-bodied but light on its feet and easy to drink, it offers a fine balance of powerful fruit intensity and seamless freshness, a style that will appeal to a wide range of red-wine drinkers, from lovers of Zinfandel to fans of Cabernet"

As to the reds, the 2019 Harvey and Harriet can be thought of as the more approachable, lush red in the lineup, and it always seems more black fruit-driven than the straight Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberries, sweet tobacco, cedar, and some floral violet nuances define the nose, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with a beautiful texture and silky tannins. It’s a smoking value, and while it has plenty of up-front charm, it certainly has a decade or more of overall longevity.
