Bond Estates Matriarch Napa Valley
(2009 Vintage) 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.
Robert Parker(2003 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by The Wine Advocate in Issue 168
International Wine Cellar(2003 Vintage) Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 126, May/June 2006 Superripe, roasted nose shows a medicinal quality. Lush and sweet but a bit cooler in style than the 2004. Today, the wine's edge of acidity has not yet come into harmony with its firm tannins.
