95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012

Deep ruby-red.  Aromas and flavors of dark raspberry, iron, tobacco and licorice.  Densely packed but juicy too, with terrific definition for such a youthful wine.  This is the Bond wine from the lowest-altitude site.  Closed today but already quite sexy.  Like the Quella, this is most impressive today on the palate-staining finish, where silky tannins are perfectly buffered by the wine's mid-palate stuffing.  (Incidentally, I underrated the 2008 St. Eden a year ago, when the wine was extremely backward.  After a full year in the bottle, it offers utterly captivating aromas of raspberry, iron, tobacco and sage, with a sweet dark fruit center, and a captivating note of red cherry on the very long, fine-grained finish.  I raised my score to 95.)

About Napa Valley

From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
