The wine opens with lifted aromatics of acacia and jasmine supported by a lovely fruit set of ripe Barlett pear, tart pineapple, and cantaloupe. On the palate the wine expands, broadening the frame, bringing layers of texture. Secondary flavors of lemon oil, almond, and chamomile round out the mid-palate. The finish is long with lingering notes of bright tropics, orchard fruit, and crushed flint rock.
About Mayacamas Winery
MAYACAMAS VINEYARDS has been a source of legendary California wine since 1889. As the newest owners in a lineage of pioneering caretakers spanning more than 125 years, we faithfully steward Mayacamas Vineyards toward a bright future, ever mindful of the great traditions of the past. Constructed in 1889 by original founder John Henry Fisher, the stone winery at Mayacamas has remained in continuous use for almost 130 years. Over the decades, the winery has changed remarkably little – the ground floor ageing cellar remains intact and filled with tools passed on from previous generations. Built into the hillside from stones gathered around the property, every vintage of Mayacamas Cabernet spends at least 2 years barrel-ageing inside.
