I ordered this by the glass at a steakhouse which claimed they were one of ten accounts in the US to get this: Mayacamas’ younger cab from vines which were only 10-15 years old. Since they weren’t from the original vines the company removes “Mt Veeder” from the bottle and still advertise it as a Cal Cab...well for a Mayacamas product it couldn’t be further than the “real thing”. At 27$ for a glass it was a big rip off - at Bin 54 in Chapel Hill, NC. Would not recommend this. Shame on Mayacamas for putting this out, explains why only 10 accounts have it. If anyone can shed more light on this please let me know in the comments.

Beautiful. Drinking well at the moment but definitely has the stuffing to last years longer.

Will only improve, but still very compelling right now. Clearly classical.

Stunning bottle from 1984 that goes great with truffles.
