October 31, 201093 Tight, firm and focused, with a trim, concentrated, structured mix of blackberry, wild berry, currant, mineral, cedar and sage. Full-bodied, then clamps down on the finish, where this shows its cedary cigar box edge. To be released spring 2011. Best from 2012 through 2022. 1,200 cases made.
December 201091 Slightly deeper, richer, more exuberant and flamboyant is the 2007 Matriarch. It offers up notes of white chocolate, espresso roast, peppery, spicy herbs and terrific fruit intensity presented in a medium to full-bodied, lush, opulent style. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

May 201091 Deep ruby-red. Ripe, inviting aromas of black raspberry, cedar and tobacco. Fresh and well-delineated, with black raspberry and tobacco flavors lifted by minerality. This has more verve than a wine with a 3.9 pH should have. Finishes very long, with fine-grained tannins. The strongest release yet under this label.
