From the valley floor vineyard in Oakville, the 2006 St. Eden has shed some of its tannic clout of last year and taken on a generously endowed style, with stunning black fruits, roasted herbs, sweet cassis, graphite, and new oak. Fleshy and even opulent (an anomaly for a 2006), this is an impressively endowed Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 25 years. (RP)
*Cellar Selection* A magnificent wine for its lush opulence and dramatic structure. Shows concentrated flavors of red and black sour cherry candy, red currants, coffee, dried herbs, anise and sandalwood, wrapped into gorgeously soft, refined tannins. Very fine and complex, and will age well. 2012-2018.
Good medium ruby. Aromas of blackberry, crushed blueberry and menthol; a bit reminiscent of a very young vintage port. Then powerful, thick and deep, with chewy flavors of blueberry and minerals. Finishes with big, tongue-clenching tannins and superb length. Quite primary today and in need of at least several years of cellaring. (ST)
A venture capitalist, Dick Kramlich, planted this north-facing vineyard on site off the Oakville Crossroad, what Paul Roberts describes as a piece of the Vaca Range that sloughed off, forming a knoll (a sector of the Napa Valley that was marked on early maps as Eden). The most immediately luxurious of Bond's 2006 wines, it's not excessively extracted. The first impression is bright, high-acid fruit layered over savory, chocolatey tannins. With air, scents of violets, lavender, rosemary and other savory herbs develop in the finish. And though there is Napa Valley money written all over this wine, it's not pushed too far. What lasts, in the end, is a sense of balance.
Nice aromas of flowers, mushrooms, and berries. Full bodied, with a sleek and balanced palate and a medium finish.
A dense, powerful expression of straight-ahead Cabernet, mixing espresso, extracted currant, licorice, mocha and baking spice notes, this is slow to expand but does so convincingly, ending with a smoky brownie-crust edge. (JL, Web-2016)
