Bond Estate Vencina Proprietary Red 2012 Product #30854 (In Stock)
Bond Estate Vencina Proprietary Red 2012 Bond Estate Vencina Proprietary Red 2012

Bill Harlan and winemaker Bob Levy created Bond in 1997 as a complement to Harlan Estate.  Note that Bond is not "Harlan's second label" as it is so often called.  Instead, where Harlan is intended to express the greatness of one singular site, Bond tells the stories of different terriors across Napa.  The outstanding Vecina vineyard lies just southeast of Harlan itself and faces due east.  It's always the most powerful, intense, of the Bond wines and very long-lived.  This is delicious already for the full-bodied fruit and wildly complex spice and will just get better for deades.

"This is riveting Cabernet Sauvignon with great intensity, a killer fragrance of burning embers, charcoal, gravel, blackberry, cassis and earth. Fabulously intense and full-bodied, a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, incredible purity and length, and supple tannins, this magnificent wine comes closest to the great Harlan Estate itself. Drink it over the next 35 years."Wine Advocate 100 points

Billecart Salmon Brut Le Clos St Hilaire 1999 Product #33002 (In Stock)
Billecart Salmon Brut Le Clos St Hilaire 1999 Billecart Salmon Brut Le Clos St Hilaire 1999

From a tiny planting of own-rooted Pinot Noir vines, a rare marvel.

"Billecart's 1999 Le Clos Saint-Hilaire is exotic and beguiling. Constantly changing in the glass, the 1999 offers exquisite aromatics, silky and a real sense of underlying phenolic structure. Crushed rose petals, licorice, smoke, game and tobacco add nuance as the wine opens up. With time in the glass, the personality of these Pinot vines becomes more and more expressive. The 1999 was bottled with no dosage, but that would be impossible to ascertain in a blind tasting."  Vinous (Galloni) 96 points
