    November 11, 2019 - Similar in profile with the 2016, but simply more integrated, softer tannins, plummy, cassis, more floral/tertiary aromatics showing up, with stunningly beautiful mix of fruit, earth, and florals. Excellent, maybe WOTN among all of the Bonds. Spago tasting with Scott Gould

    February 3, 2017 - Birthday dinner at 1700 Steak with beef tenderloin. Excellent pairing.
    Bold and concentrated. Opaque, deep, deep violet in color.
    Still primary but fine, well integrated tannins. Black and blue fruits, graphite and crushed stone.
    Long pleasant finish that lasts 45-60 seconds.

    June 11, 2016 - Had this before an 86 Gruaud, for background. Still young, primary, the purity of fruit is compelling. Is Bond better than Harlan? It's price is ridiculous but if you can get to try, it's one worthy Napa experience. Remarkably well built.

    May 15, 2016 - Slow ox for 6 hours. Decanted for another hour. Noted that the cork on this was pure as the driven snow; bottom stained, but no saturation whatsoever. Would have guess this was a 10-month old wine from the cork instead of its actual 10 years.

    Nose on this wine is a beauty. Black fruit, and a kiss of mint. Palate is voluptuous. Black fruit and graphite, and that mint still shows just a bit, and it does an amazing job completing the wine. This is super well integrated at this point. Finish is long and lingering.

    This is in just about a perfect place for me. No doubt it can hang around for a while longer, but very happy to have popped now. Excellent stuff.
