International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 162

Flamboyantly mineral aromas and flavors of cassis, black cherry, licorice, violet and exotic herbs. Large-scaled, creamy and deep; the biggest and chewiest of this set of 2009s, but with the brooding energy to leaven its lush texture. Finishes classically dry and serious, with big but fully ripe tannins that reach the front teeth. Usually powerful in a Leoville-Las Cases way, the 2009 Pluribus is remarkably harmonious from the start. Winemaker Cory Empting notes that a portion of this fruit was picked after the heavy mid-October rain, and that some of this material did not make the final blend. (I should note that my recent retaste of the 2008 Pluribus was even more impressive than the bottle I tried a year ago. This latest sample had gained in pliancy and breadth but remains extremely young, with the acid spine and tannic clout for a long evolution in bottle. I rated the wine 95 in March.)

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 204

The 2009 Proprietary Blend Pluribus boasts stunning concentration, depth and power. Tar, incense, graphite, plums and grilled herbs all flow from this dark, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. The balance of fruit, tannin and acidity is masterful. The Pluribus is always the most intense of the BOND wines. It can at times be a bit of a brute, but the 2009 is as refined as it gets. There is no shortage of class and integrity here. Hints of smoke, tar and juniper berries add the final layers of complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Amazing, complex and elegant, with a pure, rich, spicy mix of dark berry, plum and black cherry flavors. Supple and harmonious, elegant and persistent, this is the best of the 2009 Bonds.
