($150; bottled in January of 2003) Good saturated ruby. Black raspberry, black cherry and sexy, spicy oak on the nose. Very ripe but a bit less porty than the '99, with supple, sweet flavors of dusty currant, leather and minerals. A more elegantly styled if less dense wine, but still full, broad and rich, finishing with ripe, smooth tannins.

Wine Advocate | 90

The 2000 Melbury displays tremendously fragrant aromas of black cherries, currants, licorice, and toasty oak, medium to full body, luscious fruit on the attack, and a slight narrowing in the finish. While outstanding, unlike the profound 2001, it needs to be drunk during its first 10-12 years of life.

Deliciously complex, rich and polished, with layers of mocha-scented oak, ripe black cherry, blackberry and spice, offering nuances of cedar, chocolate and vanilla. Finishes with ripe, integrated tannins. 675 cases made.

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.
