2014 Bond "Quella" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L)

SKU #1352917 97-98 points James Suckling

 Blackberry, blueberry and forest-floor undertones. Great perfumes. Full body, polished and velvety tannins, and yet this is refined and focused. Wonderful texture and length. Savory and citrusy. Fantastic. Better in 2019.  (1/2017)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Quella is scented of blackberry preserves, fruitcake and crushed rocks with hints of cigar box, dried Provence herbs and Indian spices. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and great freshness lifting the black fruit and earth layers, finishing on a lingering mineral note. (LPB)  (10/2017)

96 points Vinous

 The 2014 Quella is showing beautifully. Floral and savory overtones give the wine its energy and tension. The 2014 has really come along over the last six months. Today it is vibrant and full of life, with an understated sense of power that is compelling. The 2014 has developed very nicely since I last tasted it, but it still has room to grow. (AG) 96+  (3/2018)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2014 Quella is one of the most aromatic and complex in the lineup. Coming from more seabed and volcanic soils (similar to the Melbury) and sporting a deep purple color and lifted notes of spice cake, black cherries, blueberries, violets and iron-like minerality, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, elegant, has bright acidity, and a great finish. Drink it anytime over the coming 20+ years.  (12/2017)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Full red-ruby. Pure, lucid aromas of blueberry, minerals, licorice and violet. A distinctly dark, brooding, tightly wound midweight with a lovely subtle sweetness and a surprisingly suave fine-grained texture to its black fruit, licorice, tobacco and graphite flavors. The tannins are firm but sweet and refined. Already displaying its inherent balance but this wine will nonetheless need considerable cellaring. (ST) 94+  (6/2017)
