Mayacamas's Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolutely stunning example of great Californian Cabernet. This is a worthy rival to any claret. All the fruit from Mayacamas estate are certified organic. Red raspberry and dried black currant dominate the rich and fruit driven nose while supporting flavors of graphite, iron, rose petal, and dried sage showcase the cooler, volcanic, mountain terroir of our estate. Structured and fresh, the wine shows a long finish with pronounced minerality.
92/100 - Another wine with plenty of near and medium-term appeal, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is built on texture and ripeness. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, and spices flesh out in a supple, super-ripe Cabernet Sauvignon with no hard edges. Here, too, the flavors remain surprisingly primary. The visceral thrill of the best years is missing, but there is plenty of appeal today. Dried rose petal, cinnamon, and sweet red berries linger on the close. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
17/20 - Dark garnet. Initially more minty than the 2009. But still that herbaceous and black-olive complexity overlaying the cassis fruit and bud, a touch of soya sauce starting to show. Tannins are finely chalky, delicate but still present and still rick in lively 'mountain' fruit. More rounded than the 2009. Lots of freshness and a long smooth finish but still some compactness to the tannins. - Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com


Incredibly pure, intense blackcurrant fruit flavour; cedar aromas; complex earthy character.
The vineyards range from 1,800 to 2,400 feet above sea-level.
The soils on Mount Veeder where the vines are planted are a mixture of ash, tufa and sedimentary soils.
A wine that will improve with at least five years ageing.
A big wine requires a big dish to stand up to it- try it with marinated lamb chops.
