Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

Those lots deemed not quite up to the standards of the Melbury, Vecina, and St. Eden labels are blended together to form Bond's second wine, The Matriarch. This is a second wine in name only. The 2000 The Matriarch exhibits notes of dried Provencal herbs, roasted espresso, truffles, tar, meat, berries, and black currants. While attractive, it has less flavor dimension and volume than its younger sibling.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

An awesome wine, with rich, vivid, concentrated currant, black cherry, plum and wild berry flavors that are sharply focused. The tannins are ripe and smooth on the palate, with a supple, graceful finish redolent of rich fruit flavors and pretty spicy nuances. 1,100 cases made.

Ripe fruit favor. Low oak taste. Low acidity

Very good. Lots of fruit. Better than the last bottle.

Surprisingly good. This is the best bottle I have opened so far. It has taken on structure with dark red fruit, espresso flavors over softening tannins. Medium to long finish. The wood did not overwhelm after two hours of air. There is plenty of life left and it may continue to evolve.

Good wine. Bordeaux like flavors, but with the lushness of a good California cab.
