Vinous – 98+
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is an insanely beautiful wine. I don’t really know how else to describe it. Soaring aromatics meld into a core of vivid, sculpted fruit. In the glass, the 2016 is incredibly pure, with striking inner sweetness, breathtaking beauty and terrific freshness. Time only helps bring out those qualities further. What is even more remarkable is that the 2016 made it through the 2017 fires unscathed. In that sense, it is a miracle wine. I expect the 2016 will one day take its place among the very greatest Cabernets made at Mayacamas. It is every bit that profound.
