    94 Matriarch often measures up to the level of BOND and Harlan Estate itself. It is a blend of various BOND components. The ’06 is a classically structured Napa blend, fat and flashy in youth, offering complex waves of blackberry and cherry tart, black currant, cola, licorice and sweet, spicy oak.

    92 Delicious, pure, rich and structured, with ripe cherry, plum, blackberry, mineral, anise and sage flavors that gain weight and depth. Full-bodied and firmly tannic, ending on a pleasant earthy note. Drink now through 2016. 1,539 cases made.

    90 Dark red-ruby. Superripe but vibrant aromas of redcurrant, mocha, minerals and tobacco. Sweet, silky and seamless but not thick, thanks to a medicinal menthol quality that lifts the dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. This boasts very good energy and length, finishing with dusty, ripe tannins.
