96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Melbury is profoundly scented of crushed plums, black cherries and cassis with hints of dark chocolate, black pepper, black soil and licorice plus a hint of iron ore. Full-bodied, rich and earthy in the mouth, it has a lovely fine-grained but firm backbone with plenty of freshness, finishing long and peppery. 96+ (LPB) (1/2017)
95-96 points James Suckling
Extremely aromatic with orange peel, blackberries and light tar preceding a medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long, flavorful, caressing finish. Polished beauty. (1/2017)
95 points Vinous
The 2014 Melbury is bright, perfumed and wonderfully lifted in the glass. Soft, silky tannins add to the wine’s considerable appeal. Medium in body and gracious, the 2014 is absolutely exquisite today. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal and mint grace the supple finish. This is a super-refined wine from BOND. (AG) (1/2018)
