Bond Melbury 2013

$ 999 95
The name Melbury is in homage to an historic area in London, where the estate owners reside much of the year. Since its debut with the 1999 vintage, the consistent hallmarks of Melbury have been plush red fruits (currants, bing cherries), redolent with spice and the scent of violets. Elegance and a supple texture define the structure of this wine. The particular exposition of this rocky 7-acre hillside vineyard is southerly overlooking Lake Hennessey, allowing the vines to capture the morning sun yet moderating afternoon temperatures.

UPDATE ac_BasketItems Set BasketShipmentId=null where basketid=0 AND ProductId=19965;
The brilliant 2013 Melbury ratchets up the level of extract, with an opaque purple color, dense blueberry liqueur-like notes along with white flowers, licorice, and camphor followed by a full-bodied, incredibly seamless, concentrated, multidimensional wine. With its amazing depth and richness, while accessible now, it probably won't hit its stride for another 5-7 years and last 30-35.

Chunky and chewy, with extracted, earth-laced currant and dark berry flavors accented with cedar, tobacco and underbrush notes. The dry, tannic profile leaves you hoping for more charm. Best from 2020 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 425 cases made.
