Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 - 97 Points
97 Points: 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.” - James Suckling

97 Points: “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. 2025-2053.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 - 97 Points
97 Points: “Aromas of blackcurrant, mushroom, wet earth and bark follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a stone, berry, chili and spice aftertaste. Muscular and chunky. Very serious. This shows the Mayacamas DNA.” - James Suckling

97 Points: “A real head-turner, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage. In particular, I admire the wine's density and power. The 2014 has the freshness and brightness of the vintage, but also has superb depth to fill out the wine's frame. Beams of intense salinity punctuate the finish.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 - 97+ Points
97+ Points: “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, Vinous

Top 100 2019 (Rank: #2): “Mayacamas is one of Napa’s most celebrated and historic estates. Its stone winery, constructed in 1889 in the mountainous Mount Veeder appellation, remains in use to this day. And since the 1950s, though ownership has changed several times, little has changed about the winemaking. Winemaker Braiden Albrecht and consulting winemaker Andy Erickson utilize traditional techniques to yield a classic Cabernet style, implementing a combination of cement, open-top foudres and stainless-steel fermentors before aging the Cabernet 32 months in neutral oak (20 months in large foudres and 12 in barriques). The result: a compact wine built on savory charcoal, bay leaf, tar and juniper notes.” - Wine Spectator
