2012 Bond Estates Melbury Red, Napa Valley RP--95 AG--96


Item Description: This bottle is in new condition with no known issues

Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 95 Points
From a 7-acre hillside vineyard overlooking Lake Hennessey, the 2012 Melbury, like its siblings, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new oak for a minimum of 24 to 28 months, then bottled unfiltered. The wine displays beautiful blackberry fruit, some charcoal, loamy soil undertones, forest notes, lots of spice, a full-bodied, multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a super finish of 45 seconds. Even in a vintage like 2012, this wine ideally needs 3-5 years of bottle age and should keep for 30 years.

Antonio Galloni's Notes: 96 Points
ANTONIO GALLONI 96 POINTS - "The 2012 Melbury opens with exquisite floral aromatics and bright, red-fleshed fruit. Lithe and silky on the palate, with lovely overall precision, the Melbury is one of the more finessed wines in the BOND range. I imagine the 2012 will reward readers with a long and wide drinking window of pure pleasure. Some of the wines in the range are more attention grabbing. The Melbury draws the taster in with its seductive aromatics and sublime balance. What a gorgeous wine the 2012 has become."
