Out of bottle, the 2007 Melbury is even more impressive than it was from barrel. Aromas of cedarwood, barbecue spice, licorice, spring flowers, black currants and sweet kirsch jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored wine. A full-bodied texture, wonderful opulence, sweet velvety tannins and an extraordinary integration of all its component parts make for a prodigious Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 25-30+ years.

Wonderful aromas of sage, mint, dark berries, and carroway. Full bodied, with layers of dark berries and dark chocolate that lead up to an intense finish. They don't make wines like this anymore. Powerful and nostalgic. Let this sleep for another 6 years. Start pulling the cork in 2016.
Another highly expressive wine, the 2007 Melbury is a pure joy to taste. Sweet tobacco, herbs, dried flowers, menthol and licorice add aromatic intrigue. There is a good bit of complexity and raciness in the glass. Even so, the 2007 could use a bit more time for the tannins to soften. I imagine the 2007 well drink well for another decade or more. (AG)
Bright ruby. Ripe aromas of sweet plum and smoky tobacco. Very intensely flavored and juicy, with firm acidity and strong minerality giving grip to the smoky red fruit flavors. This, too, boasts terrific definition. Tightened up considerably in the glass, giving the same tightly coiled impression as the 2006 version. I suspect this brisk, structured wine will shortly shut down in the bottle. (ST)
Firm, intense and vibrant, with dense, vivid wild berry, raspberry and blackberry fruit that's ripe, tight and framed by toasty, cedary oak flavors. Full-bodied, ending with chewy tannins, this needs both time and aeration. The most reserved of the Bond wines. (JL)
