Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"A bit ungainly now, with massive red and black cherry flavors that burst out in jammy richness. But this is Mayacamas, whose Cabernets are built to last. The tannins are fierce, the acids entirely adequate to protect this wine through 2012, when it should begin to develop bottle character...92" WE 12/09

Mayacamas Vineyards is a wine estate located in the Mayacamas Mountains that divide the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. The old stone winery is perched on the edge of a dormant volcano crater near the top of Mt. Veeder. Fifty two acres of vineyards are planted on mountain sides ranging from 1,800 to 2,400 feet above sea level. Deer, eagles, coyotes, cougars, foxes, bobcats, and an occasional bear still inhabit this rugged terrain. The winery was built in 1889 by John Henry Fisher, a German immigrant, who first worked as a sword engraver in Philadelphia and then became a pickle merchant in San Francisco. The winery was also used by his family as a summer home and as a ranch to raise and care for the horses he used to deliver pickles to his clients in San Francisco. He sold his wine by the barrel. The barrels were loaded onto horse drawn wagons, driven fifteen miles to the Napa River, and then transferred to ferry boats which took the wine to San Francisco where it was bottled and sold At Mayacamas Vineyards our objective is to make wine with as much flavor, complexity and character as grapes can deliver. Given proper care and enough time, we believe these make the most interesting and enjoyable wines of all. Read less

Low key on the nose and slightly herbal with minty overtones to the mild black currant fruit. A touch of old cellar and old aromas add a rustic edge along which along with mineral and blueberry notes add fine complexity. Rather rich in the mouth with plenty of currant and cherry fruit that is supported by soft tannins. A little shallow on the palate and a touch short, this shows a little heat on the finish as well. 88pts

Dark red-ruby. Brooding aromas of black fruits, chocolate, lavender and dried herbs. Lush, sweet and approachable; less sharply focused than the Beckstoffer bottling but spicy and attractive. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins.

"Cult wine" producer Fred Schrader decided to offer a "cult" quality wine at an affordable price. What a fabulous Cabernet! Parker describes its style as: "Very rich, full-bodied and intense, with an almost Graves-like scorched earth/hot stone sort of character."
