Maybach Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Materium 2009
I've officially run out of anything original to say about this bottling. What I can say… and what rings true every year is that we love everything about this site. There's something very unique about it and when you drink a bottle (or two) of wine a night, that is a really captivating trait. It has all the power one looks for in Napa Cabernet, however its always high natural acidity provides such explosive aromatics and palate-precision that it comes across as light on its feet. There's a nice spiciness to it that's hard to place, but it contrasts nicely with the crushed rock and dense black-fruited center that dominates the palate.
