Winemaker's Notes

Rigorous selection is employed at every stage of the wine's development. Many components, though singularly attractive and possessing lavish attributes, are not utilized in the final blends for Bond. This provides us the opportunity to create a second wine. This blend, offered under the Matriarch label, will always be evocative of its pedigree and distinct in its hillside character.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich, dense and chewy too, this red offers a core of dried currant, dark berry, fresh-turned earth, black licorice and roasted herb notes. Ends with grainy tannins. Drink now through 2028. 1,000 cases made."
93 Points

"The 2009 Proprietary Blend Matriarch opens with gorgeous aromatics. Ripe, silky tannins support hints of sweet raspberry, flowers and spices. The 2009 is subtle, perfumed and totally polished from the very first taste. This sensual, beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon is a great introduction to the vintage at BOND. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. "
91 Points

"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. "
