    November 25, 2018 - Great mouthfeel and loads of red fruits in the mouth. Finish was amazing and opened up more during and through dinner. Great wine as all BOND wines are!

    January 10, 2018 - Winorama: A winter in Wineland II; 1/6/2018-1/14/2018 (Portland, Eureka, Napa): Just a hint of alcohol that blows off quickly. Softer, velvety in texture, lots of red currant and a great depth of fruit. The finish on this just goes on and on. Really quite nice. It is still fairly youngish and by no means at maturity, but very tasty. From a 375.

    March 14, 2013 - USA Cult and Wines of Interest (Sydney, Australia): Lovely floral, cherry and mixed spice aromas with a minerality to it as well. The palate has a restrained fruit profile with lovely purity and savoury elements coming through strongly. I found this restraint appealing and it even had an element of refreshment in this context of a flight of wines that have such density and intensity. Even though it may not have the same fruit power as some of the other wines, it still had great structure and length and was eminently classy in my opinion.

    January 12, 2013 - Nice structure and mouthfeel, a bit more vegetal flavor than I prefer

    September 29, 2012 - 2 hour decant, great Bordeaux style nose and purity like no tomorrow. sweet cherries and licorice in the nose. Long finish. Made for the long run but enjoyable now!
