Community Tasting Notes 5

    May 16, 2016 - Drinking well already, the driving characteristic is the purity and focus of the fruit. I'm half of a mind that this wine will drink at its best younger than not, but I will save my other copy for a while to see. Truth to tell we haven't ever been too patient with Bond, because it's so compelling young. Excellent wine.

    December 18, 2015 - Many flavors. Better warmer. Worth $325

    November 9, 2012 - Blackberry and sweet corn magnitude. Pretty flying acid. Med/+ tannin. Really missing the mid-palate that this price point deserves, but again, this wine took on more as it was open an hour or two. We didn't really give it the time that it a wine like this needed to open up.

    August 31, 2011 - Disappointing. Flavors were muted, without the vibrant fruit I expect from an 07 Napa Cab

    March 9, 2011 - A complex wine no doubt with mostly red berries, currant and plum with blueberry accented by crushed rocks. Medium full body with screaming tannins. This should age as well as the 01.
