[Tasted on November 27, 2021 at Home with Jay Yalowitz]
100% single vineyard Cabernet. Dark purple in the glass. Black currant, black cherry, blueberry and blackberry fruit, with graphite, baking spices and a note of smoked meat. Beautiful structure and balance. — 7 months ago
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. — a year ago
Beautiful crystalline appearance in the stem, which transitions effortlessly into a seamless, focused experience on the mid-palate. The intellectual infrastructure is all present. Precision, density, complexity - choose your noun.
Notes of beeswax, caramel and white peach command your attention. Suave and sophisticated. 8:30pm on Sunday and wifey just came back from the office. If I’ve ever witnessed major job-spillage, this is exhibit A. I was left to hunt and provide for us - I feel so used… and neglected. It’s a woman’s world now. Sniff… — 9 months ago
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. — a year ago
This is the Tupungato Alto Malbec. Plum and tannins. Still young. Delicious Maybach. — 2 years ago
Its pretty open at P&P. Its good but we’re getting close to Bevan & Maybach fruit forwardness
From a site in Stags Leap, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Regusci Vineyard offers up an iron, almost bloody vibe in its assorted dark fruits, chocolate, crushed stone, and violet-tinged aromas and flavors. Hitting the palate with full-bodied richness, I love its tannins, and it has flawless balance as well as a great finish. — 5 months ago
Jeb & Parker 💯,
I bought a case for flipping purposes, but after discussions with @Severn Goodwin yesterday I became intrigued🤔. Its actually not as big a fruit bomb as anticipated,. Has some structural appeal & depth to it. But I still don’t know how you can tell the difference between Bevan, Myriad & Maybach and probably Silver Oak but it’s been awhile. — 10 months ago
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. — 2 years ago
