This is so muscular and juicy with fascinating aromas of hot asphalt, tea leaf, autumn leaf, fresh leather and dark fruits. It’s full-bodied and strong yet pure and handsome. Manly. Great texture. Needs at least five to six years to soften. The best Pluribus ever?
All the best qualities of the vintage come through in the 2012 Pluribus. Pliant and inviting, with striking depth, the 2012 has a lot to say. This is another subtle, understated wine from Bond that is presently holding back quite a bit. Even so, its potential is evident. Today, the 2012 is super-impressive. (AG)
From a 7-acre parcel on Spring Mountain, the 2012 Pluribus Proprietary Red Wine exhibits the white flowers (acacia?), blueberry and black raspberry fruit that comes from this high elevation site. It is full-bodied but very tannic, backward, coiled and relatively tight, behaving in that sense more like a 2013 than a 2012. This wine is set for a long life of 30+ years. Forget it for another 4 or 5 years, then consume it over the following three decades. (RP) 95+
Healthy full ruby. Urgent scents of inky black fruits and black cherry plus a whiff of reduction. Extremely tactile but not at all heavy; still an infant today. Finishes with a powerful spine to support long aging, but the tannins show little in the way of give today. These recent vintages of Pluribus are quite locked up and may be even better than my scores suggest. Certainly this wine possesses an outstanding combination of size, power and refinement. (ST) 94+
