The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium is a beautiful example of a wine with extraordinary purity and delineation. It possesses copious quantities of charcoal, barbecue smoke, graphite, blackberries, blueberries and creme de cassis. Full-bodied power is clearly on display, but the wine has a purity and balance that are sensational to behold. This classic Cabernet is a superstar of the vintage. (RP)
Rich, plush and full-bodied, with a wealth of dark berry flavors and pretty oak shadings, offering a mix of blackberry, plum, licorice and spice flavors that fan out nicely on the palate, followed by a tight, tapered finish. Drink now through 2024. (JL)
(these vines above Dalla Valle were planted in 1994): Good deep ruby-red. High-toned aromas and flavors of black fruits, licorice, pepper, baking spices and tobacco leaf; all cabernet sauvignon but has the aromatic lift of cabernet franc. Densely packed, seamless and sweet, with idiosyncratic peppery piquancy and firm acidity. Finishes with broad, building tannins and excellent length. Consulting winemaker Thomas Brown told me this bottling routinely has the lowest pH (in this case 3.55) of all the cabernets he works with. (ST)
I was very happy to have another chance to taste Maybach’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, which was impressive from barrel, but much less interesting in finished form, either because it was still recovering from bottling or just the victim of a bad cork. Regardless, on this night, the 2010 Materium impressed with an exciting melange of dark, mineral-inflected fruit. Sweet spiced notes, lavender and pencil shavings linger on the tense, pulsating finish. (AG)
This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, although it doesn’t say so on the label. The wine is awesome and impeccable in the modern Oakville style of intensely ripe fruit and sweet, soft tannins. The flavors of raspberries, cherries, cocoa and sweet oak are incredibly delicious. It’s soft enough to drink now, but will hold for 6–8 years.
