The 2018 The Mascot, Proprietary Red Napa Valley was a Merchant's Pick

Our #1 Pick Of 2022!

January 11, 2023

If you can get your hands on 2018 Napa Cabernets from top-tier producers, you will be rewarded.  

If you can get your hands on some 2018 The Mascot, you will be enthralled!

With gorgeous notes of cassis, warm blueberry, crushed stone, blackberry, tobacco, and underbrush, The Mascot is a hedonistic, room-filling red.  Powerful, balanced, and gorgeously expressive, this Cabernet Sauvignon lures you in with its expressive fruit, taking cues from its big brothers:  Bond, Harlan, and Promontory.  Made from the younger vines of these critically acclaimed reds, The Mascot shares a unique glimpse into the unsurpassed fruit from these three exclusive hillside estates often called "California's First Growths."  

How Good Is The Mascot?        

The Mascot is the younger vine blend of Bond, Harlan, and Promontory estate fruit; these younger vines eventually go into this trifecta of California cult wines.  Created as a family project by Will Harlan, son of founder Bill Harlan, this small endeavor (The Mascot), originally intended to be shared with friends, has become Napa's little treasure.  Today, Will Harlan is at the helm of the Harlan Family wines.

In the 2018 Mascot, you get jaw-dropping fruit and a taste of what the finest reds in Napa Valley offer - ready to enjoy now and over the next decade!   

Here's a reference to The Mascot value:  same owners, same vintage, same estate fruit, same terroir, and same winemaker.  In the spirit of a fine Bordeaux, The Mascot is the second label to these icons: 

  • 2018 Bond Napa Red @ $900 per bottle / 100 pts
  • 2018 Harlan Napa Red @ $1,900 per bottle / 100 pts, 100 pts
  • 2018 Promontory Napa Red @ $1,200 bottle / 100 pts, 100 pts 

Add it all up, and The Mascot is priceless!

"The 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet vintage belongs in an echelon with the finest of the past two decades."  Decanter

So does the 2018 The Mascot.




Enthralling Cabernet Sauvignon Takes #1!

By David Gettenberg


“The 2018 Mascot is a hedonistic red.”


The Mascot Cabernet Sauvignon is a hedonistic red wine made by three of Napa Valley’s most legendary Cabernet producers: Bond, Harlan Estate, and Promontory, all of which are owned by the Harlan Family. The 2018 Mascot is a room-filling Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the exclusive hillsides of these three Napa Valley legends. The younger vines that comprise The Mascot are sourced from Harlan Estate and Bond; they will eventually be used in the primary bottlings. If you ever wanted to get a sense of what Harlan tasted like (at $1,800 per bottle), here is your chance. And, what a vintage. 2018 is a superb Napa Valley vintage and The Mascot delivers handsomely in this vintage.
