Bond St. Eden 2013
The 2013 St. Eden is absolutely mind-blowing, with notes of blackcurrant liqueur and licorice as well as hints of Asian soy and lead pencil. Wonderful fruit that hits the palate with a cascade of glycerin, silky but noticeable tannins, and a big, earthy, rich, full-throttle, majestic finish of close to a minute add to this wine's compelling personality. It should drink well for at least 30-40 years.
Presents a perky core of dusty blackberry and currant flavors, with shades of mocha, dill and herb. This has room to grow, but for now there are questions about how the tannins will evolve. Drink now. 478 cases made.
