Mayacamas Vineyards Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$125

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a huge, dark wine... The flavors are dark, bold and incisive, with potent tannins and a real feeling of gravitas to back things up. Black cherry, game, smoke, gravel and licorice add to an impression of brooding intensity. In many ways, the 2013 reminds me of some of the great wines of the 1970s in its dark, imposing personality. Antonio Galloni, Vinouus Media

Will only improve, but still very compelling right now. Clearly classical.

Dark violet. Not very aromatic at this point but hints at blackberry, licorice, vanilla, gravel, and flowers. Tightly wound. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in large foudre then 12 months in barrique . Would hold for now. 14.25% ABV.

Tasting at the breathtaking Mayacamas Vineyard. Expressive nose with red fruits, kirsch, trace of oak. Great acidity, firm fruit tannins, bone dry with 45+s finish. Old Napa Cab style. My personal's favorite in the lineup. Decades of life ahead. 14.25% alc. 2013 vintage

Pleasant nose of red fruit and spice. Cranberry and tart cherry on the palate; acidic.

Generous and more open than other vintages, this still carries the terroir just with a little more generosity in the fruit and ripeness.

I have always wanted to try this wine. This is too soon for this bottle but still delicious. Tannins are over the top but fruit is bold with dark cherries. I’m not familiar with the soil for this wine but definite graphite and mineral notes coming through.

Lots of sour cherry. Still young, probably will be better in a few years.

Subtle but really opened up after an hour and was really structured.
