Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Mayacamas has stood the test of time with its historic vineyards and cellar set into the Mt. Veeder hillside at a staggering 2500 feet in elevation. The winery was founded in 1889 by a German immigrant couple. While the property has changed hands several times, the recent successor has taken extreme measures to retain a sense of finesse, concentration and balance. As recent as 2012, the winery has taken a step back by learning to not lean on new oak usage, instead opting for their used older casks. They continue to replant with new vines while organic and dry-farming remain a focus. Maycamas remains a benchmark producer, “the last man standing” from the glory days of California winemaking.
This is another impeccable vintage from Mayacamas. You could open now, but ideally you should give this another 5 or 10 before pulling the cork.
