The Old Prospector is a weekly email we send out on weekends. The Prospector emails focus on collectible bottles of wine in our cellar. You can expect very limited quantities – sometimes no more than one or two – of any given bottle featured in the Old Prospector.

This week marks the first of a three-week exploration of the wines of Bill Harlan, owner and founder of the renowned cult winery Harlan Estates. First up for your consideration, two vintages of side project Bond Estate’s proprietary red, The Matriarch!

2005 Bond The Matriarch Proprietary Red Wine, 2004 Bond The Matriarch Proprietary Red Wine

Our Impressions:
Bond Estates Matriarch is a special project headed by Bill Harlan of the esteemed Harlan Estates, assisted by winemaker Bob Levy and oenologist Michele Rolland. We are pleased and proud to report that we have acquired very limited quantities of Bond’s proprietary red, The Matriarch, from two different vintages, 2004 and 2005!

The bottles were purchased from a private collector, who had them cellared since release. As such, the bottles are all in perfect condition in their original wooden boxes. These very affordable releases are sure to go fast, so call Duke of Bourbon today!

2004 Bond The Matriarch
Wine Advocate, Robert Parker, 94pts. Apr. 2014:

"The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Matriarch, which I had rated 93 in 2008, was fashioned from the lots culled out from the single-vineyard wines. This is the most open-knit and evolved of all these 2004s. Full-bodied with fabulously concentrated chocolaty, espresso, black currant and blackberry fruit notes, it is fragrant, silky smooth, broad, supple and altogether captivating. This is a beauty to drink over the next 10-15 years”

2005 Bond The Matriarch
Wine Advocate, Robert Parker, 93pts. Dec. 2008:

"The lush, opulent, flamboyant 2005 Matriarch offers copious quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit, lead pencil, and earth. Already delicious, it hits just about every sweet spot on the palate. Enjoy it over the next 12-15+ years. This is a special project of Harlan Estate’s owner, Bill Harlan, that is handled by the same winemaking team as Harlan Estate’s, the inimitable Bob Levy assisted by the well-trained, brilliant oenologist, Michel Rolland. They have 20-year leases on what the y believe are some of the finest vineyard terroirs in Napa, from which they produce between 600-700+ cases of these single vineyard offerings from distinctive micro-climates… These wines see essentially the same upbringing as the Harlan Estate. They are bottled after at least 22 months of aging in 100% new French oak, and see virtually no fining or filtration. While each offering is completely different from its siblings, they all compete very favorably with Harlan Estate.”
