ITEM 8175577 - Removed from a subterranean, temperature and humidity controlled residential cellar; Purchased upon release; Consignor is original owner
This year's Matriarch is very similar to Harlan Estate in structure, and in some ways, a superior wine... most beautiful black currant, cedar, blueberry pie & Asian spice... a refined, exquisite red wine. Hard to imagine a better one...
...offers copious quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit, lead pencil, and earth.
Blackcurrant, minerals, mocha and sexy spices on the musky, slightly gamey nose. Big, lush and sweet but with sneaky acidity giving shape to the creamy flavors. I like this very rich wine's exhilarating high tones in the middle palate.
