St. Eden, which appeared first in the 2001 vintage, reliably shows great focus, an opulent "sweet" center and notes of crème de cassis, dark chocolate, and roasted herbs. Mineral-tinged and broad on the palate, the wine consistently displays fine-grained tannins and a lush concentration.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"From the valley floor, the 2010 St. Eden exhibits copious notes of creme de cassis, loamy, dusty soil undertones, forest floor, toasty oak and plenty of sweet tannin in its full-bodied, massive personality. Again, these wines are not meant for near-term gratification, so 5-6 years of cellaring is warranted. This is another 30-year wine from Bond."
Antonio Galloni- Vinous (AG): 100
"The 2010 St. Eden is sumptuous, rich and layered. A dark and totally sensual wine, the 2010 flows across the palate with seemingly endless layers of striking, beautifully perfumed fruit. This is one of the most, polished, refined wines of the year. The aromas and flavors seem to explode in all directions in a stunning expression of one of the great sites in Oakville. Today the 2010 is naturally quite primary, but it should start drinking well in another few years."
