Perhaps the wine that jumped the most in score from when I first tasted these wines out of bottle in 2008, is the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Pluribus. Rated 94 back in 2008, it’s now a solid 98 and knocking on the door of perfection. This wine comes from a Spring Mountain vineyard northwest of the charming town of St. Helena. It has gorgeous notes of graphite, acacia flowers, blueberry liqueur, scorched earth and hot stones. Reminiscent of a top Graves, it is another full-bodied, rich, concentrated wine with good acidity as well as fabulous purity and concentration. I had not seen the Graves-like character in this wine prior to bottling and post-bottling, but it is there now. This stunner is open for business and its fragrance and suppleness suggest drinking it over the next two decades. - Robert Parker

A rich opulent fleshy style brimming with ripe black cherry wild berry and currant flavors that are supple and well-focused keeping the fruit well-centered and ending with ripe tannins that have a nice earthy cedary edge... A rich opulent fleshy style brimming with ripe black cherry wild berry and currant flavors that are supple and well-focused keeping the fruit well-centered and ending with ripe tannins that have a nice earthy cedary edge. There's wonderful length on the finish. Best from 2009 through 2018. 630 cases made.

Brooding but very pure aromas of licorice, black cherry, violet, minerals, crushed rock, menthol and espresso. Very dense, deep and suave, displaying lovely definition and a light touch to its black fruit and mineral flavors. Not a particularly sweet style but with great finesse to its mid-palate texture and noble tannins. Superb, slowly mounting, very subtle finish. Wonderfully handled Spring Mountain tannins, but the wine is nevertheless quite powerful. Juicy and restrained but harmonious already. This brilliant wine showed a slightly high-toned qualty with aeration.

There’s something of a baked pastry quality, with scents of marzipan, blackstrap molasses, and blackberry-cherry pie filling. This is the rawest Bond wine, the most tannic and least approachable. It’s almost rustic in heft, like an Amador Zinfandel. Best to cellar for a few years, and could go the long haul.
