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.
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. Drink now through 2022.
The lots culled out from these five vineyards are either declassified completely or the finest are assembled into Bond’s second wine, the Matriarch. The already bottled 2008 Matriarch shows lots of cedary, roasted herb, spice box, red and black currant, licorice and Christmas fruitcake characteristics. It is a soft, well-made, round red to consume over the next decade. (RP)
