DescriptionBond Melbury Napa Valley Red Wine, USA 2000
WINE SPECTATORDeliciously complex, rich and polished, with layers of mocha-scented oak, ripe black cherry, blackberry and spice, offering nuances of cedar, chocolate and vanilla. Finishes with ripe, integrated tannins. Best from 2004 through 2012. 675 cases made.
STEPHEN TANZERGood saturated ruby. Black raspberry, black cherry and sexy, spicy oak on the nose. Very ripe but a bit less porty than the '99, with supple, sweet flavors of dusty currant, leather and minerals. A more elegantly styled if less dense wine, but still full, broad and rich, finishing with ripe, smooth tannins.
WINE ADVOCATEThe 2000 Melbury displays tremendously fragrant aromas of black cherries, currants, licorice, and toasty oak, medium to full body, luscious fruit on the attack, and a slight narrowing in the finish. While outstanding, unlike the profound 2001, it needs to be drunk during its first 10-12 years of life.
