Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($85) Deep ruby-red. Ripe, inviting aromas of black raspberry, cedar and tobacco. Fresh and well-delineated, with black raspberry and tobacco flavors lifted by minerality. This has more verve than a wine with a 3.9 pH should have. Finishes very long, with fine-grained tannins. The strongest release yet under this label.

Wine Advocate | 91

Slightly deeper, richer, more exuberant and flamboyant is the 2007 Matriarch. It offers up notes of white chocolate, espresso roast, peppery, spicy herbs and terrific fruit intensity presented in a medium to full-bodied, lush, opulent style.

Wine Spectator | 93

Tight, firm and focused, with a trim, concentrated, structured mix of blackberry, wild berry, currant, mineral, cedar and sage. Full-bodied, then clamps down on the finish, where this shows its cedary cigar box edge.

This wine just keeps getting better. A restrained style for an '07 cab, but very balanced and a real pleasure. Very good to excellent.

Maybe as expected a little closed off at the start but started to pry open after 20 minutes in the glass. Tobacco and fruit on the finish.

About This Producer


In his ongoing quest to produce world class wine in the tradition of 1st Growth Bordeaux, Bill Harlan - of Harlan Estate fame - started Bond to create single vineyard wines from sources meeting his high growing standards. Winemaker Robert Levy produces five vineyard designate wines: Melbury, St. Eden, Vecina, Pluribus and Quella, as well as a blend called The Matriarch. Levy's goal is for each wine to take on the unique expression of its vineyard site and Bill Harlan's ultimate plan is to produce wines from a total of 6 unique vineyards. The wines are known for their lush, deeply concentrated flavors, and their elegance and finesse, which Bill and Robert feel define them as the "Grand Crus" of Napa. Fewer than 1,500 cases of the Matriarch, and between 400 and 700 cases of the vineyard designates are produced annually.
