    A Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses a true sense of place. Fruit sources for this wine hail from the Mt. Veeder AVA. The aromatic profile of this wine is classic in expression, with ripe dark fruit notes accented by roasted green bell pepper and pipe tobacco. On the palate, flavors of dark cherries, black currants, and plum are present along with a marked stone minerality on the Finish. There also is an abundant freshness to this Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as a robust tannin structure, expected from the mountain fruit sourcing. This is tasting quite nicely now, but will surely last for many years to come.

    An absolute classic. A benchmark. When I think of old school California Cabernet this defines it perfectly. There's a boldness and richness to the fruit that sets it apart from Bordeaux but also a very traditional, timeless expression of varietal character; cedar, pipe tobacco and mint interwoven with plum, cassis and red/black currant. The structure is defined by long-chain, firm but refined tannin. The acidity of this cool mountain fruit gives a freshness and drive not often found in valley floor wines. The poor, rocky soils and old vines also impart a distinctive dusty mineral component. A compelling and complete expression of California Cabernet and one that long ago cemented its place in the realms of world-class wines. This is a very fine release for Mayacamas as this historical property strides positively into a new era.

    Famed Napa Valley winemaker Andy Erickson, formerly of Screaming Eagle, Staglin and Harlan Estate, takes the reins with the 2013 Mayacamas Cabernet, following the Estate acquisition by Terroir Capital. With Erickson's expert hand and the unique site of the high elevation Mayacamas Estate, we have a Cabernet of singular vibrancy, power and finesse. The 2013 Mt. Veeder growing season was ideal, and the wine is expressive of this in composition. Beautifully balanced and integrated, with high tone fruit aromas of bing cherry, wild raspberry and blackberry underpinned by sexy, savory leather, garrigue and anise notes, the wine shows excellent aging potential, and finishes in a long trail of rocky minerality.
