Wine Advocate, 100 Points 

"The 2013 Pluribus is the finest wine I’ve tasted from this vineyard to date, capturing the vintage’s extraordinary purity and richness, with a multidimensional mouthfeel and incredible notes of blue and black fruits, charcoal, graphite and white flowers. This profound effort should hit its prime in another 5-10 years and evolve for 30-40 or more." 

James Suckling, 99 Points 

"Dark wet earth and dark fruits such as blackberries and black licorice. Smokey. Full body. This young red takes off and shows incredible length and depth. Chewy yet fresh and intense. It goes on for minutes. What a mouthfeel. Can't wait to see how it evolves in the coming years." 

Vinous, 97 Points 

"In a vintage that produced big, massively tannic wines, the 2013 Pluribus stands out for its total finesse. Pluribus is also the most delicate and refined of the Bond 2013s. Lavender, mint, violet, plum and a host of bluish/purplish fruits all develop with time, but it is the wine's lifted, gracious personality that makes the strongest impression. Quite shockingly, the 2013 can be enjoyed young. Even so, I would prefer to cellar it for at least a few years." 

Decanter, 96 Points 

"Aromas of briary fruit, rich soil tones, dried herbs and subtle torrefaction are followed by a spherical, firmly structured Cabernet with a nice core of juicy fruit. From a site above the fog line on Spring Mountain which is now dry farmed, the Pluribus is the Bond wine which shows the most obvious changes—for the better—since Cory Empting began to take the winemaking helm at the Harlan properties. It's now one of the strongest wines in the portfolio." 

Wine Spectator, 94 Points 

"A remarkable effort that combines a dense, dark, rich core of gravelly blackberry and currant with cedary oak and crushed rock, ending with a long, detailed finish where the tannins add traction and a minerally edge." 

Alcohol: 14.5%
