  • A beaut. Complex, long long finish, cedar, dark fruits, maybe some chocolate, without question a Cali cab. Seems pretty mature, not sure I see it has the stuff to go on and on like a Togni, but it's just fine right now. Now to read my last tasting on this and see what I said before

  • Unfortunately this bottle was not in the mood - a real shame because a previous bottle opened last year was showing very well. In this case there were some hints of crushed blackberries and a touch of chocolate fudge but it kind of came and then went. The 01's should be drinking nicely nice as per the above comment and from tasting through some of Bond's portfolio.

  • Chocolate, vanilla, caramel, French new oak and dark currants on the nose. The wine was very restrained tonight. The wine was very powerful and juicy, but the palate did not really open up. It's still too young to drink now. Maybe this one is an off bottle.
