96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005
($175) Deep medium ruby. Subdued but pure aromas of dark fruits and licorice. Sweet, stylish and pure, with a suave, fine-grained texture and subtle flavors of currant, raspberry, iron, tobacco and minerals. Lush and perfectly balanced; a bit less roasted in character than the superb 2001, which I again rated 94 points in early March. Finishes with outstanding, mounting persistence. Showing spectacularly right now. Combines great sweetness and richness with uncanny finesse and purity of flavor. In theory at least, this is the most elegant wine in the Bond stable. The pH of this wine is typically around 4.0, or a bit higher than the St. Eden and Vecina.
