International Wine Cellar | 92

($150; like the Melbury, this is from 100% cabernet sauvignon planted in 1990) Ruby-red. Explosive, wild nose combines roasted red berries, grilled meat, tar, brown sugar, mocha and truffle. Dense but juicy, with more power and thrust than the '99 Melbury but not quite the same early appeal. Intriguing notes of smoke, herbs and truffle. Finishes with very smooth, fine tannins.

The 1999 Vecina, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon offering, exhibits aromas of graphite, tar, coffee, and creme de cassis. It is more austere and less charming and seductive than the 1999 "S".

Pleasantly earthy, firm, dry and structured, with dried currant, black cherry, spice and black and green olive flavors folding together nicely. Full-bodied and tannic, yet focused and persistent, gaining depth on the finish. The best of two bottles tasted.'1999 California Cabernet blind retrospective (2009).

Made from a vineyard neighboring Harlan Estate, the '99 Vecina is one of the first efforts (along with another single sourced vineyard red called Melbury and Bond?s second wine sourced from both vineyards called Matriarch) from Bond, Bill Harlan and Bob Levy?s new project. The Vecina is very open and forward ? atypical for the '99 vintage. Moderately tannic with good sweet rather unformed fruit and mineral overtones. Harlan Estate it isn't Not a long distance runner either, drink now to 2009.

About This Producer


In his ongoing quest to produce world class wine in the tradition of 1st Growth Bordeaux, Bill Harlan - of Harlan Estate fame - started Bond to create single vineyard wines from sources meeting his high growing standards. Winemaker Robert Levy produces five vineyard designate wines: Melbury, St. Eden, Vecina, Pluribus and Quella, as well as a blend called The Matriarch. Levy's goal is for each wine to take on the unique expression of its vineyard site and Bill Harlan's ultimate plan is to produce wines from a total of 6 unique vineyards. The wines are known for their lush, deeply concentrated flavors, and their elegance and finesse, which Bill and Robert feel define them as the "Grand Crus" of Napa. Fewer than 1,500 cases of the Matriarch, and between 400 and 700 cases of the vineyard designates are produced annually.
