The ultimate Napa cult winery, BOND, is a partnership by two of the most revered men in American wine, Bill Harlan and his winemaker Bob Levy. The two were at Merryvale together, making wine using more than 50 vineyards in the Napa Valley. Eventually though, Bill sold, but along with Bob, they kept five vineyard sites for a new project, one that no one could have predicted would be as big as it has become.
In Bond, Bill Harlan is able to create some of the most amazing Cabernets in the world and truly America’s answer to Bordeaux. The wines are huge, this one in particular Robert Parker, Jr. called a “30 year wine”. James Suckling took it a step further though bestowing perfect marks on the wine and calling it the best single-vineyard wine from Bond in the phenomenal 2010 vintage in Napa. Considering some of the others fetch over $1000/btl, it’s pretty high praise. This wine is every bit deserving of it. Its perfection is abundantly clear.

100 Points, James Suckling
This is the best single-vineyard cabernet sauvignon-based red from Bond in this vintage, showing incredible purity of fruit and seamless tannins and refinement. Amazing. Better from 2018 on.
