$150.00 $125.00

Mayacamas Vineyards is one of the great crown-jewels of domestically produced, Mountain Grown Cabernet Sauvignon.  Their style of aging in neutral oak barrels results in a pure expression of Mountain fruit by preserving the wines natural favors and expressive terroir.  That style has made them a favorite among many of Sommeliers and Grand Award winning wine lists over the years.  Their Estate Vineyards atop Mount Veeder have been a  a source of legendary California wine since 1889, and the wines have now been brought to an even higher level by winemaker Andy Erickson…  Andy previously made Screaming Eagle from 2005-2010 producing two perfect 100 Point Wines. The Mayacamas 2015 has already earned monstrous ratings and if you enjoy Napa Valley’s finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon, don’t miss this release…

Created from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon  grown near the top of Mount Veeder, the 2015 exercises a perfect blend of power and restraint, and offers a vivid interpretation of Mount Veeder terroir.  The winery produces some of the most classically-styled, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons from Napa Valley, and this is one of the best vintages yet…

2015 MAYACAMAS “MOUNT VEEDER” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Youthfully compact, with tightly wound black currant, bitter plum, and blueberry notes, this needs time to meld with the charcoal bay leaf and star streaks, but the mouthwatering cut on the finish suggests that won’t be a problem. Offers a long echo of juniper at the end. Best from 2023 through 2040...”

Another stellar wine from Mayacamas… the 2015 is dense, powerful and super-concentrated, with a level of finesse in its tannins that separates it from so many wines in this challenging vintage. Time in the glass brings out graphite, menthol, licorice, sage and spice notes that add a sense of gravitas….
