    June 16, 2016 - Drank at The Arthur J in Manhattan Beach - stellar wine, still loaded with tannins and fruit. Made for red meat - once the fat coats your mouth, the wine plays off of it so well. Truly a treat.

    January 30, 2016 - Classic BOND. Lots of dark fruits on the nose. At first there was a bit of alcohol on the nose, but about 30 minutes of being opened, it disappeared. Very complex and long finish. Notes of cassis, tobacco and even some leather character in the taste. Very strong wine that kept getting better and better. Would have rated this a 90 at opening, but several hours later, the bottle developed even more. Very nice wine to drink.

    December 3, 2015 - HDH Holiday Wine Tasting (HDH Offices - Chicago IL): Tasting, brief note. Powerful black fruit concentration, but the ripeness and new oak are just a little too distracting to me. Well made in its style, and I understand why some people like this a lot, but it's just too monolithic for my tastes.

    December 3, 2015 - HDH holiday tasting (Chicago, IL): Overoaked. Too much vanilla and blueberry and yet, by some miracle of nature, this somehow manages to be green and overripe at the same time. And then you feel the alcohol. Easy pass.

    October 31, 2015 - Lacking somewhat on entry and mid plate with a huge red berry finish. Still a little heat. Even after 4 hour decant. Not the best Bond I have had. Still seemed somewhat tight and lacking what a wine at this price should deliver. Much better wines out there for far less $$$$$. Not impressed.
