Winemaker Notes

The name Melbury is in homage to an historic area in London, where the estate owners reside much of the year. Since its debut with the 1999 vintage, the consistent hallmarks of Melbury have been plush red fruits (currants, bing cherries), redolent with spice and the scent of violets. Elegance and a supple texture define the structure of this wine. The particular exposition of this rocky 7-acre hillside vineyard is southerly overlooking Lake Hennessey, allowing the vines to capture the morning sun yet moderating afternoon temperatures.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 E Pluribus, like all of these Cabernet Sauvignons, is youthful, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with spring flowers and wet rocks. Full-bodied, powerful, and backward, with sweet tannin but formidable structure, this wine needs to be cellared for 4-5 years and drunk over the following 25 years.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Very dark, dramatic, opulent, but young. Opens with brooding aromas of black currants, cassis and spices, and turns dense in tannins in the mouth. Deeply refined, concentrated, intense, bone dry. A classic Napa wine in every sense, and one in need of extended cellaring.
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Bill Harlan started the Bond project "to establish a stable of grand crus," as he describes it. Paul Roberts, formerly of The French Laundry, is general manager, the counterpart of Don Weaver, who has worked with Harlan for the past 25 years. We tasted five single-vineyard wines from Bond for this issue, all made the same way, each expressing a different site in the Napa Valley. Pluribus grows at the Oberndorf Vineyard, 900 feet up Spring Mountain, the vines planted in 2000 on fractured volcanic soil. It's a powerful, black and tannic wine in 2006 (Roberts describes it as the Château Montrose of Bond's stable). With air, the masculine arrogance of the tannin slowly relents, turning from savory black olive toward cassis and currant. What's remarkable about the wine is its penetrating depth, a deep well of flavor in the glass. Its richness is another compelling factor: It comes directly from the structure, so rather than feeling heavy, the wine feels complete and fresh.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rich and deeply concentrated, almost syrupy in its density, with potent currant, mineral, sage and dusty, cedary oak. Tightly wound, backward and closed, yet the focus and concentration are noteworthy. Needs time.

The enduring vision at Bond is to create a portfolio of wines that are diverse in their geographic representation and "grand cru" in quality, all under the umbrella of one philosophy, one facility and one mark. Sourced from select hillside estates, the Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines of Bond vividly demonstrate the range of Napa Valley's finest terroirs.

Napa Valley, California

Above the town of St. Helena on the eastern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains sits the Spring Mountain District.

A dynamic region, its vineyards, cut by numerous springs and streams, vary in elevation, slope and aspect. Soils differ throughout with over 20 distinct types inside of the 8,600 acres that define the appellation. Within that area, only about 1,000 are planted to vineyards. Predominantly farmed by small, independent producers, the region currently has just over 30 wineries.

During the growing season, late afternoon Pacific Ocean breezes reach the Spring Mountain vineyards, which sit at between 400 and 1,200 feet. Daytime temperatures during mid summer and early fall remain slightly cooler than those of the valley floor.

Spring Mountain soils—volcanic matter and sedimentary rock—create intense but balanced reds with lush and delicate tannins. The area excels with Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and in some cooler spots, Chardonnay.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
