Bond is the extraordinary project of Harlan Estate’s proprietor, Bill Harlan. In essence, what he does along with his winemaker, Bob Levy, and his team, is to identify outstanding vineyard sites in specific viticultural regions of Napa Valley, sign the owners to long-term (20 years) leases, and produce essentially 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines from these sites.
BOND Vecina 2008
The 2008 Vecina is a huge, strapping wine bursting with dark fruit, leather, licorice, smoke, minerals and tar. It possesses striking mid-palate depth and more than enough fruit to stand up to the firm, imposing tannins. Iron, graphite, smoke and minerals are layered into the dark, brooding finish. This is an impressive showing that should drink well for three decades or more. RP 97
BOND St. Eden 2008
The 2008 St. Eden, from the lowest elevation vineyard in the Bond portfolio, reveals Pauillac-like black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, Christmas fruitcake, spice box and white chocolate characteristics. This complex, dense ruby/purple-tinged, multifaceted, impressively pure, textured beauty should drink well for 20+ years. RP 95
