The 2019 Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder is a captivating red wine that exudes elegance and complexity. Crafted in the esteemed Napa Valley region of California, this wine showcases the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of Mayacamas Vineyards.
In the glass, this Cabernet Sauvignon displays a deep, rich red color that is visually enticing. The aromas are a symphony of dried herbs and mixed berries, offering a delightful bouquet that immediately captivates the senses. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied and crisp, with a lean profile that sets it apart from the bolder, more opulent Cabernets of modern Napa. This stylistic choice allows the wine to showcase its intricate layers of flavor and maintain a sense of balance.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty rich, bombastic wine, especially for Mayacamas. A blast of dark fruit, incense, tobacco, licorice, spice and mocha hits the palate. I would give the 2019 at least a few years in bottle to settle down, as it is quite the powerhouse today. This is an unusually flamboyant wine with plenty of richness and a bit less in the way of subtlety. The opulence of the vintage comes through loud and clear.
96pts Wine Spectator
Loaded with character and energy, this version reveals heavy notes of zesty sweet bay leaf and sassafras that infuse a core of steeped red currant and mulberry fruit, all carried by bright acidity and iron-laced tannins. The long finish pulls everything together, with the fruit, savory and mineral elements in harmony. Showing an old-school touch, this has a long life ahead. Best from 2025 through 2045. 4,000 cases made.
