The 2018 vintage in Napa is one for the ages, belonging in the echelon of the finest in recent decades. A long, slow and moderate growing season provided a welcome respite for producers after the significant challenges posed by the 2017 season. The 2018 saw a mix of fermentation vessels: concrete (60%); stainless steel (30%); and neutral French puncheons (10%). Post-fermentation it rested in foudre for 20 months followed by 12 months in French barrique and the usual two years in bottle. 

Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Reviews

“This distinctive version leads with pine forest, sweet bay leaf and savory notes, with a core of steeped currant and bitter plum fruit, plus ample tobacco and warm stone notes in the background. The finish is chiseled in feel, with racy acidity taking just as prominent of a role as tannic grip. With range, character and energy to spare, this should cruise in the cellar. Best from 2025 through 2045.”
97 points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
“It is of course a very young wine but possesses tremendous aromatic nuance and freshness to play off a core of huge dark fruit. Readers will have to be patient with the 2018, as it is an imposing, vertical Cabernet that needs years to be at its best. Bright floral and spice notes lift the soaring finish as the wine’s inner sweetness gradually emerges over time. The 2018 is super-impressive. That’s all there is to it.”
