Subdued but pure and vibrant nose offers black raspberry minerals licorice and truffle all lifted by an ineffable perfume that carries through on the palate. Boasts terrific definition and energy; following the group of Bond offerings from '06 this tasted like a wine from another vintage. Very intensely flavored but wonderfully refined wine with a light touch to its slowly mounting highly complex flavors of dark fruits spices minerals tobacco and spices. A wine of great finesse finishing with superb tannins and outstanding lift. This wine has been a knockout from the outset.

The 2006 Harlan Estate has turned out better than I originally predicted. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of creme de cassis melted licorice smoked meats burning embers and graphite. It has thrown off some of the tannic clout it displayed last year revealing great balance. A candidate for "wine of the vintage" this dense full-bodied effort has 25+ years of life ahead of it. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2035.

Tight and complex with a dry earthy mineral edge to the red currant and black cherry fruit but this slowly unwinds revealing greater depth and concentration and ending with a long persistent finish. Quite tannic but the flavors push through on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2020.
