Wine Advocate | Rating: 100Bottled in early 2018, the 2015 Pluribus is deep purple-black colored with minted cassis, pencil shavings and tobacco over a core of black plums, black berry preserves and mulberries plus hints of Chinese five spice and dried lavender. Big, rich, bold and decadent, it has a firm line of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness lifting the generous flavors to a long finish.Drink Dates: 2022 - 2052Author: Lisa Perrotti-BrownIssue: Mid-October 2018 New Releases
Vinous | Rating: 98All the elements come together beautifully in the 2015 Pluribus, a wine that captures all the best this challenging vintage had to offer. Inky red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal, blood orange and mint are some of the many notes that take shape. Powerful and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2015 has more than enough fruit and overall richness to play off the structure that is such a signature of this Spring Mountain wine. Complete, multi-dimensional and stunning in its beauty, the 2015 Pluribus is a fitting conclusion to this flight of 2015s from BOND.Drink Dates: 2023 - 2035Author: Antonio GalloniIssue: Dec 2018
James Suckling | Rating: 98Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, flowers, black ink and currants. Full-bodied, rich and powerful like Pluribus. Polished chewy tannins. One of the best wines ever from here. Give it four or five years of balance. Drink in 2020.Drink Dates: 2020+Author: James SucklingIssue: Wednesday, May 23, 2018
Wine Spectator | Rating: 95Dark and brooding in profile, with a strong charcoal frame around dark currant and warmed fig fruit flavors. Broad and loamy in feel, but there's depth too, with tobacco, cocoa and bay accents. Well-detailed despite the heft. Just give this some time. Best from 2021 through 2038. 408 cases made. — JMDrink Dates: 2021-2038Author: James MolesworthIssue: Oct 31, 2019
