    June 20, 2020 - Opened at 4pm, places in a decanter from 6-6:45pm and back to the bottle to consumed at dinner 8pm-10pm.

    I believe this wine didn’t fully opened, while the body is bold, and the mouth is coated with layers of minerals and purity it was a little flat on the middle. To me the edges were beautiful but lakes a bit complexity and secondary notes on the center.

    If I had another bottle (which sadly I don’t) I will keep it in the cellar for at least 5 years. The best days of this wine are still down the road...

    95+ HOLD.

    May 16, 2020 - The 2007 Pluribus is so concentrated in flavor and almost aggressive on the attack and then just drifts to silky balance and a lengthy almost medicinal herby laced finish. Still a little drying at the very end. This wine is in the window now but easily has 20 more years to give. Excellent wine with plenty of structure and layers of flavors.

    I decanted this for 5 hours at cellar temp and we consumed over the next five hours. I think it was best starting at about the 6 hour mark when it was closer to room temperature. With all of the bond wines, I typically do not even start approaching them until their 10th birthday, and even then I find they need a proper decanting to maximize enjoyment.

    Served with lamb saddle and crispy bacon fat brussel sprouts with charred corn and pignoli nuts.

    Also had a glass before dinner with some extra sharp cheddar and some aged gruyere and mixed nuts.

    It paired well with everything.

    January 31, 2020 - Lavender, damp tilled soil on an autumn evening, medium tannin almost completed its integration into a nearly perfect and elegant Spring Mountain Cabernet. These aged Bonds are really phenomenal

    August 8, 2019 - Decanted and served. Recommend a one-hour decant as it was quite closed until then. Sturdy single-vineyard blend from high on Spring Mountain. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates with very firm tannins and light charred earth integrated on the palate. If you're expecting a quality Napa Cabernet you won't be disappointed. It's thick and balanced if unsubtle.

    June 8, 2019 - First impression is a strong note of dirt and yet in a really positive way. Strong minerals and earthiness and black pepper. Nose is subtle and ethereal and a huge contrast to the bold flavors. Toast, big body, still dense tannins. Extremely long finish. From a magnum, decanted.
