"These are simply some of the most utterly magnificent wines I have ever tasted" Antonio Galloni
"The quality of these singular, extraordinary offerings is world-class" Robert Parker
Stephen Tanzer's recently published article, A Bond Extravaganza, details "a sensational tasting" of every wine made at Bond in their 20 vintages to date. He praises their "consistently high quality" and supports the belief that these single-vineyard wines represent Napa Valley's 'Grand Crus'.
Bond is the extraordinary project of Harlan Estate's proprietor, Bill Harlan, to create 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines that represent distinctive and separate micro-climates of Napa Valley. Just 450-600 cases of each are produced annually which Parker believes "perform at first growth quality levels".
"It is impossible not to compare Bond to Bill Harlan's Harlan Estate... my sense is that the Bond wines are a little more vibrant than Harlan Estate, which tends to occupy a spot a little further out on the ripeness spectrum... These are simply some of the most utterly magnificent wines I have ever tasted, and a true testament that terroir not only exists in Napa Valley, but that these are some of the most privileged sites for making wine anywhere in the world." Antonio Galloni
We can offer numerous vintages of these critically-praised terroir-based Cabernets in OWC assortments, magnums and bottles.
