I've certainly had better performing bottles from Maybach. In November '13 I posted the same bottle here and and noted that it was impenetrable even after substantial air and that it needed a minimum of 3 more years in the bottle....I'd say it's still sleeping. Angular and a little astringent. Not really a lot of heat just not much in the way of inviting round edges. Hold.

This would have been an unhappy face on Thanksgiving when I popped it and decanted for 3 hours. It was so impenetrable. After 48 hours of air it was showing well tonight. I suggest a hold for at least 3 years. My experience is '09 Napa cabs are totally shut down.

A nice dirtiness to it though ripe and rich. Not sure i could have more than a glass but delicious modern Cabernet nonetheless.

5 hr decant and really served it well. A massive wine but so well made. Needs time

Even after 12 hr slow-ox it's still huge! Coffee, blackberries, pepper and some vanilla oak. Serious stuff that needs time

Not good, not tannic, no fruit, just blah, not even close to maybachs first growth, you can get a $20.00 cab thats better than this
