Good deep ruby-red. Distinctly wild aromas of dark berries, leather and licorice, with a whiff of game; as in some past years, this called to mind a ripe vintage of Leoville-Las Cases. Then dense and savory in the mouth but not especially sweet, with superconcentrated dark fruit flavors showing a brambly mountain intensity and attractive spicy lift. Still extremely backward, this very powerful, youthfully medicinal wine conveys a strong impression of dry extract. The slowly mounting finish features very strong but fine-grained tannins. A good percentage of this wine is fermented in barrels in an attempt to soften its huge Spring Mountain tannins.

The 2010 Pluribus reveals classic notes of blueberry and mulberry fruit intermixed with hints of violets, incense and licorice. The striking aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, dense, supple-textured, multidimensional wine that should drink well for 25-30 years.

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.
