Materium Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The flagship, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, represents 560 cases and achieved 14.8% alcohol after aging in 90% new Taransaud and Darnajou casks. Remarkably, the wine matches the perfect 2013, with extraordinary fragrance of blueberry, blackberry, forest floor, truffle, spring flowers and background barbecue smoke followed by a thick, unctuously textured, juicy, but incredibly well-balanced, intense wine. This is built like a skyscraper with enormous quantities of blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, well-integrated acidity and sweet, gentle tannins. This is an extraordinary effort from Maybach that can be drunk now or cellared for up to 30 or more years. — 6 days ago

This is the Tupungato Alto Malbec. Plum and tannins. Still young. Delicious Maybach. — 7 months ago

Leopoldina Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Good but not great. Same vineyard source as Maybach Materium, but not nearly that good. Still, perfectly enjoyable in its own way. — a year ago

Vieilles Vignes Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Solid 9.5. Did not match up to the Maybach/Abreu/SQN last night but still excellent. Much lighter on the palate even less than than an Aubert Pinot, great aromatics, classic Cab flavors but not the rich, dark, deep flavors of last night. — 4 days ago

Estate Stags Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Shay A
9.3

I followed this over two days. It was initially opened alongside a 2016 Maybach Materium, 2013 Kapscandy Roberta’s Reserve, 2002 Colgin Cariad and a 2006 Dalla Valle Maya.

Aside from BV’s Guest Cottage, this is the only wine from them I haven’t had. Sporting almost a 16%ABV, it poured like motor oil in to the glass. Thick, rich and heady aromatics. This has that classic high quality Napa cab smell to it...smells of expensive toasted oak, espresso, fondue dipped dark fruits, and spiced nutmeg. A meal by itself on the palate, this is a 2013 that is unsurprisingly massive and in need of food to cut through the tannins. Dark initially before it turns slightly red fruit forward at the finish...dark cocoa topped black cherries, espresso sweetness, and black currant. I’d hold at this point. Not sure a decant is doing much at this stage.

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

You have to be patient. Out of the gate everyone loved the Maybach which is just so delicious right out of the chute. Give it an hour (probably more) and this really starts to shine. Two hours into dinner this was amazing and just outshined the Maybach. To be clear I love both. Start with Maybach finish with this and just be incredibly happy. Happy anniversary. — 5 days ago

Irmgard Pinot Noir 2017

Very elegant Pinot that seems to be a cross between a burgundy and a California Pinot. Fruit forward but not overtly so.. slight sourness that makes your mouth salivate!! — 5 months ago

Love both cabs. Not in love with the Chard/PN. 🤷🏻‍♂️

@David L I can see how this Pinot may not appeal to many people.. I feel like all TRB pinots are similar in that they lean more Burgundian and slightly more austere (Boar’s View comes to mind) .. this one grew on me a little the more it breathed. I agree though, I LOVE their cabs!!
