International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

Good red-ruby. Plum, mocha and chocolate on the nose. Lush and seamless on the palate, with a sappy, liqueur-like raspberry flavor complicated by leather and smoke. There's something Bordeaux-like about this broad but lively wine. Perhaps ultimately less suave than the young 2005 but today this is even longer.

I think the 2004 Matriarch is opulent and impressive. Dark ruby/purple, beautifully exotic and full-bodied, with notes of incense, toasty oak, blackberry, licorice, and chocolate espresso, the wine is round, fleshy, and succulent. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Rich, almost thick and syrupy, with loamy, savory currant and black olive flavors that are compact and focused, all presented in a supple, graceful style. Finishes long and persistent.

Color: Nice claret red edges, dark core Nose & Palate: Notes of cedar, black cherry, black currants, blackberry, dusty sweet mocha, with hints of pencil shavings and savory roasted meats. Rather reserved and in much better balance than the 2003, the 2004 is a cornucopia of sweet black fruits like cherry, blackberry and currant, some spicy oak and mocha chocolate, concentrated without being weighty, the tannins are superb with good grip, no edge to them at all.
