Maybach Family Vineyards Materium Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (1500ml)

$1199

There are roughly 600 cases of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, all of which comes from the Weitz Vineyard on the eastern Vaca Mountain hillside of Oakville at an elevation of about 1,000 feet above the Silverado Trail... This wine is incredible first-growth material – a magical Cabernet Sauvignon with an opaque purple color, an extraordinary nose of blackberry and cassis, white flowers, crushed rock and minerality followed by a full-bodied majestic mouthfeel with phenomenal balance, purity and overall equilibrium. Stunningly rich and impressive... Robert Parker

From 375ml. Perhaps just the moment and/or food pairing but I think this is my lowest rating on this to date.

Weston hosted Friday group today and was it definitely a can’t miss tasting. Wow! Absolutely knocked it out of the park with heavy hitter after heavy hitter. Similar to Wednesday group, all wines are tasted blind. My first Maybach. From the first time it was poured in my glass until the last taste, this was my favorite (though the ‘13 Macdonald tied it in the end). Sweet rhubarb pie on the nose, palate was very clean...not overdone. Red, blue and black fruits, nutmeg and red cinnamon. Insanely good.

Inspired by a recent posting here I popped and shared this with friends that much like I have deviated from "The 100 pts. fascination". Certainly a very impressive wine it is also a bit predictable what it takes these days to garner that perfect rating from a certain palate.

14.8% alc. While certainly impressive, to my palate this is a notch below their (great) 2012. We're all different but the "bigger is better"-mantra doesn't really work for me any longer.

14.8% alc. I've been a fan (and buyer) of Maybach since their inaugural 2004 but really think things are hitting a high stride with 2012/13. Super concentrated nose but still impressively balanced on the palate. A great wine!!

To quote my two friends @Martin G Rivard and @Mike Rowe this is a bad ass wine eliciting smiles all around (and a great way to start 2017). Parker gave this a perfect score and it is a beauty. Decanting is a must at this point. It's been opening up over the last 4 hours and think it will continue to improve if I can sip more slowly lol. Slightly cloudy, and a bright purple in the glass. On the nose, cassis, vanilla and toast dominate. The sips are long and driven by fruit (blue and blackberries and cassis). Liquid silk in the mouth with sweet tannins and a surprisingly strong acidity. The finish is long. This is a total baby but I had to try it. Happy New Year to all my Delectable friends and especially to my fellow Wine Nerd Herd. I've always believed that sharing wine with friends is the greatest gift and this app has enabled me to do that with friends near and far and connect with some great people. May 2017 be a year of great health and happiness and may all our glasses be full!

Opened at 2pm and I was scared when I sipped it to make sure the bottle was ok. It was wound tight and I was afraid that it would not show well for dinner. 8 hours later it was PERFECT. It was in full stride and amazed everyone. My 1st Maybach!!! Baby., where have you been all my life!!
