Good saturated ruby-red. Very fresh aromas of black raspberry, licorice and toffee. Lovely energy to the classic dark berry, licorice and graphite flavors. Impressively concentrated for this bottling and showing considerable early sex appeal, especially considering that it was bottled barely a month prior to my visit. Finishes with noteworthy lift and length.

The 2009 Matriarch opens with a burst of dark red fruit, flowers, licorice and tobacco. It boasts remarkable inner perfume, soft, silky tannins and fabulous overall balance. I especially like the way the 2009 fleshes out on the finish. The depth and roundness of the fruit makes the 2009 very appealing, even at this young stage

Rich and dense, chewy too, this red offers a dense core of dried currant, dark berry, fresh-turned earth, black licorice and roasted herb notes. Ends with grainy tannins.

Really like this wine. Not the plush nose and mouth feel of some Napa cabs, but great flavor and balance. A little bit tannic still, but a really nice wine.
