Bond Melbury 2013
Wine AdvocateThe brilliant 2013 Melbury ratchets up the level of extract, with an opaque purple color, dense blueberry liqueur-like notes along with white flowers, licorice, and camphor followed by a full-bodied, incredibly seamless, concentrated, multidimensional wine. With its amazing depth and richness, while accessible now, it probably won't hit its stride for another 5-7 years and last 30-35.
Wine SpectatorChunky and chewy, with extracted, earth-laced currant and dark berry flavors accented with cedar, tobacco and underbrush notes. The dry, tannic profile leaves you hoping for more charm. Best from 2020 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 425 cases made.
