The 1977 Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from the glass with dark red cherries, plums, smoke, tobacco, licorice and incense. This is another powerful, epic wine with plenty of life ahead of it. Mint, crushed flowers and licorice linger on an intense, layered finish supported by huge, massive tannin. Floral notes add an element of lift, but the 1977 remains quite dark and brooding in style.

The 1977 Mayacamas is another fine success for this great decade, and the wine at age thirty is fully mature and ready to drink. The wine does not offer quite the same complexity and backend grip as the finest vintages from Mayacamas, but is still delivers a fine glass redolent of black cherries, chipotle peppers, tobacco leaf, a bit of tariness and a complex base of soil nuance. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and quite open knit, with plenty of sweetness in the mid-palate, melting tannins and a long, suave finish. It may just be me, but I have the distinct impression that this is a slightly lower acid vintage of Mayacamas cabernet than is typical. A lovely drink, but without quite the dimension of the greatest vintages from this property (Drink between 2007-2020)
