My Favorite Neighbor Vineyards of Booker Winery has released a new wine, Harvey & Harriet. Officially released earlier this month, the 2017 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon blend is the latest addition to the range of premium wines in the leading Paso Robles producer’s portfolio, headed up by owner and winemaker Eric Jensen.
Priced at $50, Harvey & Harriet is a continuation of the affordable luxury that Jensen champions. Consistently receiving high scores across all the major wine publications to rival quintessential Napa and Bordeaux varietals, Jensen’s wines aim to extend the message that ultra-luxurious, collector-worthy wine can exist without pretension at accessible price points.
Harvey & Harriet comprises a delicious blend of Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Syrah for a harmonious and well-balanced Paso Bordeaux style expression. Reflecting the coastal Paso Robles terroir, the new wine contains notes of black cherries and espresso.
Jensen’s own parents serve as the inspiration for Harvey & Harriet, represented in two hand-holding silhouettes always balancing on the tightrope of life, adorned with the inscription “Everyone’s favorite neighbors. Or not.”
“We made this wine because it has the ability to show more Americans the true price-quality potential we’re delivering in Paso Robles,” says Jensen.
Harvey & Harriet’s blend of Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal outdoor dining companion. For the true Paso experience, enjoy this wine Santa Maria barbecue-style with black-pepper seasoned beef tri tip, fresh salsa and tossed green salad.
Harvey & Harriet is currently available in select on- and off-premise accounts in California and Florida with additional distribution to New York in Fall 2019. With a limited release of 2,900 cases currently, an expanded rollout of 12,000 cases is projected in 2020, along with the build of a new, state-of-the-art hospitality center.
