Both intense and concentrated this shows a suppleness at midpalate that lets the flavors glide across the finish. It ends with excellent structure and a touch of cedar. Best from 2007 through 2014. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 1200 cases made. (JL)

Suave and fine-grained with enticing flavors of plum and black raspberry. A plump sexy wine with a long slow-building finish featuring very fine tannins. This shows a firmer structure than the very good 2001. In fact this seems more refined as well as more of a real wine rather than simply a blend made up of declassified fruit than previous vintages of The Matriarch.

Nevertheless it is a beautiful effort. Sweet black cherry and cedarwood aromas emerge from the medium-bodied 2002 Matriarch Proprietary Red. With a soft supple texture and an evolved upfront style it is ideal for drinking over the next decade. Restaurants as well as consumers who are incapable of deferring their gratification should buy this one by the case.
