2008 Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L Magnum
This Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon in 1.5L Magnum is one of a handful of wines that has stayed true to its style over a number of decades. The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon proved this point recently during a vertical tasting of Mayacamas wines going back to the early 1960s. Tasting the 2008, it is possible to transport oneself into the future to see how the wine will develop. This wine captures the spirit of Napa Valley mountain Cabernet Sauvignon—rugged tannins, aromatic complexity, and pure varietal expression. Over time, these wines continue to round, and to unveil new layers of interest and complexity. With a light decanting the future is visible in tasting this wine.
