Pluribus 2012 Bond
€ 603,79 (incl. Vat)
From a 7-acre parcel on Spring Mountain, the 2012 Pluribus Proprietary Red Wine exhibits the white flowers (acacia?), blueberry and black raspberry fruit that comes from this high elevation site. It is full-bodied but very tannic, backward, coiled and relatively tight, behaving in that sense more like a 2013 than a 2012. This wine is set for a long life of 30+ years. Forget it for another 4 or 5 years, then consume it over the following three decades.
This is so muscular and juicy with fascinating aromas of hot asphalt, tea leaves, autumn leaves, fresh leather and dark fruits. It’s full-bodied, strong yet pure and handsome. Manly. Needs at least five to six years to soften. The best Pluribus ever?
