2011 Mayacamas Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

SKU #1569910 100 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the truly exceptional wines of the vintage. As I worked through this series of retrospective tastings, I had hoped to find at least one wine like this. A truly epic 2011. When I tasted the Mayacamas Cabernet, I knew I had found it. Deep, potent and massively constituted, the 2011 possesses tremendous richness and pure power, all within the classical framework that is such a Mayacamas signature. Dark fruit, lavender crushed rocks, menthol and sage build as this explosive Cabernet shows off its pedigree. The 2011 is the last vintage Bob Travers made at Mayacamas (although it was blended and bottled by the current team). It is very clearly one of the wines of this challenging and misunderstood vintage, as well as a fitting testament to his legacy. Harvest stretched into late October and early November.

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Released for the first time in Spring 2021. A mellow but developed nose of blackberry, bramble, anise and cedar. The palate is round and succulent, with an impressively juicy, thirst-quenching quality and flavors of black currant, charcoal, allspice and caramel. A beautiful expression from a producer that was stylistically well-suited for the conditions of 2011. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2021)
