International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($175) Good medium ruby. Aromas of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, with a note of coffee; just this side of roasted. Extremely dense and sweet, combining great sucrosity with very firm but fine tannins. Superripe but balanced at an absurdly high level of richness. Complicating notes of redcurrant, tobacco, menthol, stone and leather. Finishes very long. Still a bit youthfully subdued, but extremely long on the aftertaste.

The 2002 St. Eden, which comes from a valley floor vineyard in the Oakville corridor, is unreal. I had given the 2001 a perfect score, but the 2002 (made by the brain trust of on-site winemaker Bob Levy and outside French consultant Michel Rolland) is showing incredible elements of cedarwood, licorice, chocolate and creme de cassis as well as exquisite texture, full-bodied intensity, and unbelievable purity and length. It is only the second vintage for this vineyard, leased by Bill Harlan for several decades, and it has turned out to be a killer Cabernet Sauvignon and a great classic of Napa. It should drink well for 20-25 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A rich, dense, harmonious Cabernet, with plush cassis, currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit that picks up a hint of plum and blueberry. The flavors explode on the finish, offering hints of anise and black cherry fruit that turn supple and elegant. 700 cases made.

Dark, rich, ruby. Distinct nose of truffle with sweetness. Nice balance, smooth, seamless. On the palate it shows great balance. Not overly sweet, with distinct notes of preserved plum. Very classy and my preferred of all the Bonds from the vintage. 50+10+8+19+9=96
