Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has great elegance and power. Ripe raspberry and sarsaparilla highlight the aromatics on the nose. Layered notes of dried lavender and wet slate highlight both vineyard site and winemaking style. On the palate this wine's fresh acidity and gravelly minerality lead to great focus at the finish and compliment notes of fig, leather and cacao.

Our grapes are harvested early to highlight freshness and firm tannins. For fermentation we utilize a combination of cement vat fermenters, open-top foudre and stainless steel. After approximately two weeks on skins, we gently press and are ready for aging. The 2015 Cabernet aged 32 months in neutral oak–20 months in large format foudre and 12 months in barrique. After bottling the wine was cellared for 12 additional months before release.

Ratings & Reviews

97+ Points - Vinous:
"Another stellar wine from Mayacamas, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon continues to be quite reticent, which is probably a very good thing for its long-term prospects. Even so, 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. I would prefer to cellar the 2015 for at least a few years to allow some of the baby fat to melt away. I expect the 2015 will always remain an exotic, full-throttle wine relative to the norm here. I can't wait to see how it ages." Antonio Galloni - (Dec 2018)

96 Points & #2 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:
"Youthfully compact, with tightly wound black currant, bitter plum and dark blueberry notes, this needs time to meld with the charcoal, bay leaf and tar 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. 2,250 cases made." —JM
