Bond St. Eden Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2004

$345

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Eden, which comes from a valley floor vineyard in Oakville, is another dead ringer for a great Pauillac, possibly a young Mouton. Dense bluish/purple in color with stunning notes of cedarwood, unsmoked high-quality cigar tobacco, creme de cassis and espresso roast, this wine has fabulous fruit, density and a full-bodied, youthful mouthfeel, wonderful balance and purity, and a terrific finish that goes on for close to a minute...

First Bond i've tried. Liked this a lot, but need a bigger sample size before I can contrast it with Harlan.

Extraordinary. Jammy, wonderful mouth feel. The 2004 has aged remarkably well and is better now than previously tasted. Awesome.

Needs at least one hour of air. A big long lasting cab that cuts through spice/salt and charred beef. Wow.

Love Bond, one of the greats. The St Eden had a little bitterness initially, but opened up well after an hour. I’m partial to Melbury but can’t complain here, splitting hairs on a great producer.

Opened 4 hours prior to drinking. Dark color, and black fruit aromas and flavors of berries and plums, with some chocolate. Tannins are starting to lie down. Enjoyable, but a bit too ripe and primary for me.

Complex amazing wine. Full flavor with luscious tannins. Long in the palate. Continue to cellar the wine for another 10 to 15 years.
