Bond St. Eden 2014
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 St. Eden offers up expressive crème de cassis, black cherry compote and blueberry pie notes with hints of cedar chest, baking spices, menthol and pencil lead. Full-bodied, tightly packed, taut and muscular, it has a solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and lovely vivacity coming through on the long, earthy finish.
Pure, rich and vibrant, with a tasty core of plum, blackberry, currant, anise and cedar flavors. Most impressive for the weight and refinement, remaining quite elegant and graceful despite the size. Best from 2020 through 2034. 603 cases made.
