    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:

    A great introduction to Bond's style is the 2001 Matriarch, which Bob Levy calls, "our elegant leftovers." This is a three-vineyard blend of the juice that was not rich or concentrated enough to be included in the single vineyard bottlings. Beautifully made, with wonderfully sweet notes of smoke, lead pencil shavings, black cherries, and cassis, an opulent texture, impressive concentration, low acidity, and silky tannin, it possesses more up-front charm and accessibility than its bigger siblings.

    This second label of Bond is right up there with the named wines. It is virtually undistinguishable from Vecina, although perhaps a shade less profound and more obvious. A terrific Cabernet-based wine, rich, powerful and ageable. At less than half the price of Bond, it’s a comparative value. Editors' Choice

    Good full ruby. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, gunflint, beefsteak tomato and mellow oak; more red than black fruit in character. Supple, ripe and very suave, with an inviting gamey richness. The big, building tannins dust the front teeth.
