Wine Advocate | Rating: 90The 2003 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch possesses scents of sweet currants, black cherries, and pomegranates, with tart acidity and a Burgundian-like personality. Earthy terroir notes also emerge from this full-bodied Pinot. It should drink well for 5-7 years.Author: Robert Parker
