BOND Matriarch Red, Napa Valley, USA 2000
WINE SPECTATORAn awesome wine, with rich, vivid, concentrated currant, black cherry, plum and wild berry flavors that are sharply focused. The tannins are ripe and smooth on the palate, with a supple, graceful finish redolent of rich fruit flavors and pretty spicy nuances. Drink now through 2012. 1,100 cases made.
WINE ADVOCATEThose lots deemed not quite up to the standards of the Melbury, Vecina, and St. Eden labels are blended together to form Bond’s second wine, The Matriarch. This is a second wine in name only. The 2000 The Matriarch exhibits notes of dried Provencal herbs, roasted espresso, truffles, tar, meat, berries, and black currants. While attractive, it has less flavor dimension and volume than its younger sibling.
