A Taste of Napa’s Finest: Harlan & Bond

Prized & Rare Cabernet Sauvignon

Bill Harlan created his Estate in 1984, with the goal to establish the Napa equivalent to first growth Bordeaux.

By many standards, he succeeded and made Harlan Estate one of the world’s most prized wines. His focus on the vineyard and the quality of the grapes, along with his very long term vision are probably what makes Harlan so successful today.

Located on some of the best vineyards of the Oakville AVA, the Estate is mostly planted in Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) in classic Medoc fashion. It took Bill Harlan six years of learning his terroir before he released the first commercial vintage, in 1990.

Today we are pleased to offer you the 2014 vintage, in very limited quantities. Due to such limited quantities, please feel free to call our Sotheby's Wine retail store or contact a specialist to place an order. Pierre-Antoine.Bollet@sothebys.com, Graham.Tucker@sothebys.com, Nicholas.Jackson@sothebys.com, or call +1 212.894.1990.

But Bill Harlan’s source of inspiration did not stop in Bordeaux. The distinct qualities of each vineyard in Burgundy triggered his next move, when he created Bond. The same team using the exact same methods to farm and make wine from five different vineyards, located across Napa Valley. The result is purely a reflection of each individual vineyard.

Our selection features all five vineyards in 2012 and 2013 vintages.
