Bond Melbury 2014
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Melbury is profoundly scented of crushed plums, black cherries and cassis with hints of dark chocolate, black pepper, black soil and licorice plus a hint of iron ore. Full-bodied, rich and earthy in the mouth, it has a lovely fine-grained but firm backbone with plenty of freshness, finishing long and peppery.
Massive and rich, yet balanced and refined, with a sense of elegance and refinement that is worth experiencing, as the charm and grace of this powerful wine is noteworthy. Best from 2020 through 2030. 448 cases made.
