Maybach Family Vineyards Materium 2013


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

From the Weitz Vineyard you can see the entire Napa Valley from end to end. Looking out, you get a sense of expansiveness and completeness -- a feeling of abstract broad grandeur. These same qualities are found in this wine, probably our best vintage to date. True Cabernet aromas of cocoa nib, sandalwood, and allspice are kept afloat by an airy, high-toned aroma. The palate is interlaced with notes of cassis, sage smoke, and blueberry reduction, all framed by a seamless tannin structure. One of the hallmarks of a truly complete wine is balance and harmony on the palate -- It's what we strive for every vintage. Ideal growing conditions in 2013 result in a wine that surpasses expectation, offering in unison everything the varietal, the vineyard and the growing season can potentially bring. Truly exceptional wines have an element of the ineffable -- something you can't really put your finger on. This is one of those wines.

Wine AdvocateThere are roughly 600 cases of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, all of which comes from the Weitz Vineyard on the eastern Vaca Mountain hillside of Oakville at an elevation of about 1,000 feet above the Silverado Trail. This is shallow soil interspersed with loads of pebbles and stones. This wine is incredible first-growth material - a magical Cabernet Sauvignon with an opaque purple color, an extraordinary nose of blackberry and cassis, white flowers, crushed rock and minerality followed by a full-bodied majestic mouthfeel with phenomenal balance, purity and overall equilibrium. Stunningly rich and impressive, this wine will hit its peak in 8-10 years and has the potential to last 40-50 years. For those who keep track of such things, the wine was completely aged in 100% new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels.
