2006 Mayacamas Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon
the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is shockingly young. Dark and brooding, the 2006 is a big, massively constituted wine that will thrill readers lucky enough to own it for many decades to come. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of savory and earthy notes. Wild black cherry, chocolate, licorice, spice and leather develop in the glass adding further layers of complexity. Amazingly, the 2006 still has room to grow. (AG) (1/2020)
2003 Mayacamas Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon94+ points John Gilman
Mayacamas has had a program of re-releasing their Cabernets after ten years and this has continued under the new ownership. Therefore, the 2003 vintage made by Bob Travers is just coming back into the market again, and it is a stellar bottle. This is a classic Mayacamas Cabernet in what was not a great vintage, but is certainly a great wine. The bouquet is blossoming and is flat out stunning, offering up a complex blend of cassis, dark berries, cigar ash, a nice touch of bell pepper, great soil tones, smoky tones and a nice touch of incipient chipotle in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and rock solid at the core, with moderate tannins, great focus and grip and a very, very long and perfectly balanced finish. In any event, the wine is aging beautifully and is a classic Mayacamas. 94+ (7/2018)
