Tasting Notes For Mayacamas Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
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.
Vibrant and textured this wine offers aromas of red raspberry, sarsaparilla and black pepper. This wine has beautiful structure – elegant tannins and length are highlighted by notes of bay laurel, all spice, and mulberry. Secondary notes of graphite, black olive and cacao hint at classic wines of the old world.
