“Mayacamas Vineyards is among the classic wineries that have made California wines among the world's finest. The original stone winery is a Napa classic. The Mayacamas wines remain extraordinary...they offer a freshness almost unparalleled in Napa, along with an intensity of tannin that can invigorate fans of the valley's classic wines...what's clear about the Mayacamas wines is their durability – the legendary 1974 is still young... not just Cabernet, but Merlot one of Napa's treasures) and the vibrant Chardonnay. Recently I tried Chardonnays from the early 1990's, which were holding up far better than many Burgundies from the era.”

Jon Bonne, The San Francisco Chronicle

“Mayacamas Vineyards is one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon producers in the history of California. For those who long for great red wines that cellar with conviction and evolve in the course of time into brilliantly complex and compelling wines, Mayacamas Vineyards remains one of the brightest stars in the constellation of California wine. Mayacamas Vineyards’ Cabernet, often called the Chateau Latour of California, certainly displays great similarity to Chateau Latour. Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet at its peak often delivers an aromatic and flavor profile that (also) shares many elements with La Mission Haut Brion or other top Graves properties, coupled with a deep core of sweet black cherry fruit that could only hail from California. In short, if California had first growths, Mayacamas would unequivocally be one.”

John Gilman, View from the Cellar

“...the Cabernets and Chardonnays of Mayacamas continue to be some of the longest- lived wines to be made in Napa. More magically, when encountered at 15 or 20 years of age, the wines blossomed into crystalline expressions of rock, and redwood, fruit, herbs and spice. To many drinkers encountering the wines early in their years, they could appear somewhere between enigmatic and unforgiving... but anyone with an Old World sensibility chancing upon an older bottle would likely find themselves arrested by an expression of place, distinctive and compelling.”

Alder Yarrow, Vinography

“Really, you can't do better than Mayacamas Vineyards for California wine profoundness... the source of some of Napa Valley's most significant wines, both red and white... Mayacamas Vineyards makes some of California's greatest Cabernets,period... original, dramatically fine Chardonnay like almost no other in California – or anywhere else for that matter... it's one of America's greatest Chardonnays, bar none...”

Matt Kramer, The Wine Spectator

“The important thing was how much I liked it, how much I loved Mayacamas. Being up there, being on top of the world, literally. Looking back on it, I can see how I got caught up in it, and became totally dedicated to working in that place... It wasn’t just work; it was a part of my life.”

Bob Sessions, Interviewed for The Wine Columns

“One of the most iconic estates of Napa Valley… For six decades Bob Travers made some of the most compelling, age worthy and profound Napa Valley wines at Mayacamas. These magnificent Cabernet Sauvignons capture an artisan spirit from a long-gone era in Napa Valley that is only now being rediscovered and fully appreciated for what it is: one of the richest legacies in Napa Valley, the United States and the world.”

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

“Mayacamas Vineyards is legendary... it's reputation for producing amazingly complex, long-lived wines is well-deserved... Mayacamas Cabernets are deeply colored, enormously rich and concentrated wines... hese wines live up to their billing. The rewards of cellaring can be awesome. Mayacamas Cabernets are as rich, complex, and structured as any produced in California.”

James Laube, The Wine Spectator

“Mayacamas is setting a new standard for what California Chardonnay can be. Don't miss it.”

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, Reviewing 2016 Chardonnay

“I can tell you with certainty that many of the most famous scribes in the wine world head to Mayacamas first as a customer... Maybe the idea of Mayacamas is to bring families closer together, a wine for the three of you – mother, father, and child, many years from now, as you sit together to savor a special moment, reminiscing about what once was and what is still to be.”
