Wine Description

Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a remarkable expression of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon crafted by Winemaker Andy Erickson. This wine originates from the estate’s 12 Cabernet Sauvignon blocks situated at elevations ranging from 1,800 to 2,200 feet on their 475-acre property on Mount Veeder.

The wine opens with a deep, garnet hue, drawing you in with a vibrant, aromatic complexity. On the nose, you’ll encounter enticing notes of zesty sweet bay leaf and sassafras that infuse a core of steeped red currant and mulberry fruit. These flavors are enhanced by a backdrop of bright acidity and iron-laced tannins, creating a wine with both character and energy.

During the winemaking process, the grapes are meticulously hand-harvested in the cool morning hours to preserve their integrity. After sorting and destemming, the must is fermented and macerated for 10 to 25 days, depending on flavor development. Aging takes place in a combination of oak cooperage, including large format foudres and barriques, for a total of 36 months, with bottle conditioning for an additional year before release.

This Cabernet Sauvignon blend may vary by vintage, occasionally including percentages of Cabernet Franc and/or Merlot. It showcases an elegant, polished style with silky, aromatic qualities and a majestic presence. The wine’s blood orange, crushed raspberry, mint, and exotic spice nuances linger on the palate, promising decades of fine drinking.

Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a testament to the winery’s commitment to crafting mountain-grown wines of exceptional quality, reflecting both site and vintage while maintaining a tradition of elegance and nuance. With its old-school touch, this wine has a long and promising life ahead, making it best enjoyed from 2025 through 2045.

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
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.
VIN 97
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon marks a return to a more elegant, polished style following the two powerhouses that are the 2017 and 2018. Silky, aromatic, and beautifully perfumed, the 2019 is majestic from the very first taste. There is plenty of depth and structure, as well as the balance to support decades of very fine drinking. Blood orange, crushed raspberry, mint, and exotic spice nuances linger. Even in the early going, the 2019 is shaping up to be majestic.

Mayacamas, a storied winery, is perched near the summit of Napa Valley's Mount Veeder sub-appellation. This historic estate has earned a stellar reputation for crafting classic Cabernet Sauvignon wines and exceptional Chardonnays. The winery's origins date back to 1889 when John Henry Fisher, an immigrant from Germany, built the stone winery and planted Zinfandel vines. However, the 1906 San Francisco earthquake forced Fisher to sell the winery during a period of bankruptcy. During Prohibition, Mayacamas continued to thrive by selling wine to the Church for religious purposes while discreetly running a bootlegging operation. In 1941, the winery was reborn as "Mayacamas" under the ownership of Jack and Mary Taylor. They replanted the vineyards with Chardonnay and Cabernet... Read More
Cabernet Sauvignon is a red grape varietal that is widely regarded as one of the world's most popular and highly valued wine grapes. This grape is grown in many regions around the world, including France, the United States, Australia, Chile, and Argentina.

Mount Veeder’s viticultural roots stretch back to the mid-19th Century. Although many vineyards flourished on this mountainous terrain by the dawn of the 20th Century, Prohibition halted viticultural activities. It wasn't until the 1960s, amidst Napa Valley's wine revival, that Mount Veeder saw resurgence. This unique region earned its American Viticultural Area (AVA) designation in 1990, an accolade that...
