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.
