BOND 2017 St. Eden Proprietary Red Napa Valley
97 Points Jeb Dunnuck - I loved the 2017 St. Eden. This Oakville beauty boasts a deep purple hue as well as incredible minerality in its blue fruits, cassis, violets, and tobacco-laced aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, ripe, tannic, and concentrated, it has everything you could want in a Napa Valley Cabernet. Give bottles 2-4 years in the cellar and enjoy over the following 20 years or so.
97 James Suckling - Currants, blackberries and flowers on the nose. Solid core of fruit and tannins. Beautiful, ripe fruit. The freshness and brightness are wonderful here. Compact tannins.
96 Points Vinous - The 2017 St. Eden is bold, juicy and also more immediate than some of the other wines in the range. Then again, that's St. Eden, a site that naturally produces sumptuous Cabernets. In 2017, St. Eden comes only from the older portion of the vineyard, which was planted in 1991.
95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - St. Eden comes from a red, rocky, iron-rich vineyard site located just north of the Oakville Crossroad in the Vaca Mountains. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 St. Eden is a little broody, opening out with much coaxing to notes of crushed black cherries, cassis and tilled soil with hints of red currants, fruitcake and dusty soil. The opulent, full-bodied, soft-textured palate delivers bags of spicy black fruit preserves flavors, backed-up by loads of freshness, finishing long and exotic.
