Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

Good full ruby-red. Currant, tobacco, graphite and sexy cedar oak tones on the nose. At once creamy and vibrant, with a deeply spicy quality to the dark fruit and mineral flavors. Ripe and seamless wine with a suave, lingering finish. A lovely wine with considerable early appeal.

The 2008 Matriarch shows lovely focus in an understated expression of dark red fruit. Flowers, spices, licorice and tobacco are nicely layered into the finish. Overall, the 2008 comes across as a bit compact.

Rich and loamy, with mocha, dried currant, blueberry and espresso flavors. Full-bodied, offering a nice lift in the aroma, with touches of roasted plum.

A little underwhelming. Opened up a bit as the evening went on, but generally a bit restrained and hot 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.
