2003 Bond Melbury Cabernet - 750ml

2003 Bond Melbury Cabernet - 750ml

In Stock Unavailable
2003 Bond Melbury Cabernet The 2003 Melbury Proprietary Red possesses white chocolate, blackberry, and cassis fruit along with a hint of espresso roast. Dense and rich, but not as opulent or supple as the St. Eden, it is a brawny, structured, tannic red that should age for 20+ years. This is the newest brainchild of the irrepressible Bill Harlan and his sensational winemaking team of Bob Levy and Michel Rolland. These are all 100% terroir-based Cabernet Sauvignons from distinctive sites in Napa Valley. There are 600-700 cases of each cuvee. The Melbury represents a hillside vineyard site above Lake Hennessy, the St. Eden is a valley floor vineyard in the Oakville corridor, and Vecina is a western hillside vineyard adjacent to Harlan Estate. I also tasted a stunning wine from Spring Mountain, which may be the next site that Bill Harlan offers to Bond’s mailing list clients. The quality of these singular, extraordinary offerings is world-class. RP
