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.
