Bond Melbury 2003, 750mL (WA97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Bond Melbury

750mL

Vintage: 2003
Region: US
Appellation: Oakville, Napa

WA97
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Melbury comes from a slopeside site on the northern side of Lake Hennessey, opposite the Rutherford valley floor. Winemaker Bob Levy compares the 2003 to the 2006 because of the wet winter and spring and the summer`s heat spikes. A brilliant effort from sedimentary soil with rocks over compacted clay, it is a gorgeous wine offering raspberry, black currant, spring flower and blueberry characteristics along with a dense purple color, a full-bodied, multilayered mouthfeel and sweet tannin. This stunningly rich hillside Cabernet Sauvignon should reach full maturity in 4-5 years and keep for 15-20 years thereafter." -- Robert Parker in Issue #207 of the Wine AdvocateMore Information about this producer: "The single vineyard wines represent Bill Harlan`s concept of offering single vineyard, micro-climate/terroir-based wines from distinctive sectors of Napa Valley." -- Issue #207 of the Wine Advocate
