2012Bond Quella  (Napa Valley)97

Inky on color, the wine is intensely concentrated, opulent, round and powerful. There is a depth of flavor combining black and blue fruits, smoke, vanilla bean, licorice and dark chocolate. The layers of deep fruits are impossible not to notice. But it's the lusty, luscious styling on the palate, with grace, roundness and purity, that leave the biggest impression. Drink now, if you enjoy primary fruit, or age it, for more earthness. Either way, this is a special bottle of California Cabernet Sauvignon.

2010Bond Matriarch  (Napa Valley)91

Clearly made from sweet, juicy, ripe, berries, the wine is medium bodied, softly textured and leaves you with a soft, polished, ripe, fruit filled finish.

2007Bond Vecina  (Napa Valley)97

Packed and stacked with layers of ripe and over ripe berries, coffee, licorice, smoke and oak, the wine is lush, rich, powerful, sweet and long. What more can you ask for in a young, vibrant, California Cabernet? It should age well too!

2006Bond Quella  (Napa Valley)93

My first experience with this wine from Bond delivered a powerful, tannic, full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon packed with coffee, blackberries and cocoa. Another year or two should add more softness and more complexity to the wine.

2004Bond Pluribus  (Napa Valley)92

Perhaps it was this praticular bottle, but I was not as wowed as I had expected to be. While there was ample scents of licorice, earth, dark berries and oak along with good concentration of ripe fruits, there was some dryness in the finish.

2003Bond Pluribus  (Napa Valley)93

Ripe, OK, very ripe, sweet, round, lusciously textured, full-bodied and loaded from start to finish with layers of opulent black and blue fruits, smoke and espresso.

2002Bond Melbury  (Napa Valley)97

Dense, rich, concentrated and packed with loads of sweet black fruits, smoke, espresso beans, dark chocolate and earthy characteristics, this was young and intense and will only get better with age.

2002Bond Vecina  (Napa Valley)96

Structured, firm, fresh style here, with a complex nose of smoke, licorice, tobacco, black cherry and blue fruit. Ripe fruits and length, full bodied and concentrated, with freshness and complexity, this is drinking just great today.

2001Bond St. Eden  (Napa Valley)95

The debut vintage of this offshoot from Harlan estate offers a nose filled with smoke, blackberry, earth, charcoal, tobacco and cassis. While rich and concentrated, this is more of a finesse style of California Cabernet Sauvignon, which ends with a fresh, sensuous, spice, earth and black cherry liqueur filled finish. 2001 Bond St. Eden is drinking great today.
