(from an uplifted river bed near the Phelps winery): Good ruby-red. Nuanced aromas of blackberry, minerals, licorice and wild herbs; a bit more medicinal in character than the 2008 version. Quite closed and inexpressive following the recent bottling, but concentrated dark fruit flavors show a lovely light touch, with mineral and floral notes providing lift. Finishes with serious, toothdusting tannins that will require aging.

The darker, more virile side of the vintage comes through in the 2009 Proprietary Blend Quella. A dark brooding wine, the 2009 saturates the palate with black cherries, plums, smoke and incense, all in a firm, brooding style that is highly appealing. Vivid and constantly changing in the glass, the Quella impresses for its multi-dimensional personality and potential. Hints of smoke, ash and scorched earth are layered into the powerful, structured finish. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.

This is perhaps the tightest of the new Bonds; nonetheless, it offers a dense, focused core of dried berry, black licorice, crushed rock and dried herb flavors. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors fan out.

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.
