Notes from the Winemaker:

The 2013 vintage of Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon marks the beginning of a bright new era of winemaking at Mayacamas. Savory, bright and deep, this generous wine offers black cherry, ripe blackberry, and mission fig. On the palate herb notes of star anise, marjoram and French lavender provide complexity and depth alongside the juicy bramble fruits. Secondary notes of graphite, cacao and pencil lead hint at classic wines of the old world.

The 2013 growing season and harvest were ideal at Mayacamas. Warm spring temperatures and dry weather resulted early bud break, consistent flowering and even fruit set. Warm summer days and cool foggy nights provided the perfect balance for ripeness. A heat spike in early September signaled the start of the Cabernet harvest on September 10 – our last fruit arrived at the winery October 8th. Grapes for the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested exclusively from high-elevation vineyards, some more than 40+ years old. Mount Veeder is a one-of-a-kind appellation with a cooler mountain climate and the lowest yields in Napa Valley. Soils range from poor volcanic deposits to ancient seabed; the grapes produced here retain high acidity and a clean, mineral character.VARIETAL:

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Ratings & Reviews
97 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a huge, dark wine. Virile, imposing and massively structured in the glass, the 2013 is a wine for readers who can be patient. The flavors are dark, bold and incisive, with potent tannins and a real feeling of gravitas to back things up. Black cherry, game, smoke, gravel and licorice add to an impression of brooding intensity. In many ways, the 2013 reminds me of some of the great wines of the 1970s in its dark, imposing personality." - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2018)

97 Points - James Suckling:
"This is slightly more opulent than other vintages of Mayacamas with tile, slate, dark fruits and flowers such as roses. Full body, firm and luscious tannins. Lots of sage and lavender undertones. Best ever from here? First wine from new owners. Reserved extravagance. Barrel sample. Released in fall 2017." (May 4, 2016)
