Bond St. Eden 2010
From the valley floor, the 2010 St. Eden exhibits copious notes of creme de cassis, loamy, dusty soil undertones, forest floor, toasty oak and plenty of sweet tannin in its full-bodied, massive personality. Again, these wines are not meant for near-term gratification, so 5-6 years of cellaring is warranted. This is another 30-year wine from Bond.
Rich and powerful, with torque to the ripe dark berry, chocolate, subtle earth and cedar flavors. A muscular yet graceful style that holds its own and promises a nice life ahead. Best from 2015 through 2025. 530 cases made.
