Wine Spectator – Firm and structured, with loamy earth, mocha and espresso, this is ripe and lively, with currant, blueberry and wild berry notes that are pleasingly subtle and detailed. Even more expansive and syrupy on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2022.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2008 Quella is a dark, brooding wine loaded with super-ripe dark black fruit, smoke, tar and licorice. It is a seriously intense wine that will require bottle age. This is an especially authoritative wine from Bond.
About This Wine
Quella is the name for the wine from a 9-acre site located in the eastern hills overlooking the heart of the Napa valley. Making its debut with the 2006 vintage, the name is derived from the German word for a pristine source or an artesian aquifer. this property is steeply sloped facing southwest. the site is an ancient riverbed composed of cobble and rocks interwoven with pockets of tufa (volcanic ash) that were uplifted during the last volcanic activity in the area. Quella displays an almost ethereal quality of blue fruits, graphite, and a vibrant, subtle finish.
