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 is shallow soil interspersed with loads of pebbles and stones. 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, this wine will hit its peak in 8-10 years and has the potential to last 40-50 years. For those who keep track of such things, the wine was completely aged in 100% new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels. (RP)
Arresting aromas of wild plum, blackberry, cassis and rich spice are followed by a wine of striking volume and symmetry. From a site in east Oakville which retains amazing acidity, the Materium is texturally broad and seamless but also unusually pure and delineated. (WK)
Big, rich and layered, with tiers of extracted blackberry, road tar, tobacco, anise and mocha, all well-defined and deep. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors fold together for a harmonious, mineral-laced finish. The power and dimension of this wine may take time to be absorbed. (JL)
