A great candidate for Wine Spectator’s #1 – 2018 Top 100 Wine of the Year. Winemaker Andy Erickson, formerly of Screaming Eagle fame, has captured this legendary vineyard’s true mountain terroir in this expressive “old school” rendition of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
2014 MAYACAMAS Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder, Napa Valley
95 points | $125 | 4,396 cases made | Red
This packs in a lot of juicy black currant and blackberry paste notes, with
lively licorice snap and bramble accents filling the available space. A roasted
apple wood accent lends a mouthwatering edge while a tarry echo at the
very end adds range and length. Should cruise in the cellar. Best from 2020
through 2045.—J.M. – WINE SPECTATOR
