High on the slopes of Mount Veeder, Mayacamas Vineyards has been a source of legendary California wine since 1889. Since the 1950’s the vinification and élevage of Mayacamas remains remarkably consistent and our continued commitment to employ classical techniques and tools is integral to the character of these wines. The mountain terroir at Mayacamas ranges from 1,800 to 2,400 feet in elevation and the estate spans 475 acres, only 50 of which are dedicated to vine.
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has deep, brooding blackberry and black cherry aromas, along with a sage-like dimension, on the nose. The acidity on the tongue balances the surprisingly supple tannins. Red currants and plums on the palate finish very long. Will age gracefully for many years. Drink now through 2023.
