Bond Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Melbury 2004
"Made in the same style as the fabulous 2002, the 2004 Vecina boasts an opaque purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of white chocolate, roasted meats, high class cigar tobacco, creme de cassis, and pain grille. With huge tannin, massive concentration, and a full-bodied, thick, juicy, powerful finish, it will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for 2-3 decades." The Wine Advocate<br/><br/>

External Reviews for Bond Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Melbury
Rich, almost thick and syrupy, with loamy, savory currant and black olive flavors that are compact and focused, all presented in a supple, graceful style. Finishes long and persistent. Best from 2009 through 2013. 1,481 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2004 Bond (Harlan) The Matriarch Proprietary Red Wine 750ml
Deep, full ruby. Black raspberry, licorice, roasted tobacco and mocha on the nose. Huge, broad and compellingly deep but not especially sweet or fruity. Surprisingly sappy acidity gives the wine shape and verve. The tannins here seem sweeter than tho... Stephen Tanzer. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2004 Bond (Harlan) Vecina 750ml
