"The 2016 Chardonnay is simply dazzling. Bright, fresh and nuanced, the 2016 possesses striking energy from the very first taste. Lemon peel, almond, mint and white flowers are some of the many aromas and flavors that emerge from this finely sketched, vibrant Chardonnay. A wine of pure and total class, the 2016 has the pedigree to age gracefully for many years to come. Quite simply, this is an unbelievably beautiful wine that is sure to delight Mayacamas fans. Drinking window: 2018-2031. 94 points

My most recent visit to Mayacamas was quite poignant. The devastating effects of the October 2017 fires were visible throughout the property. Just a few pieces of wall remain of the main building where I once tasted with the team. I still remember sampling the young 2017s last September. The vintage seemed so promising back then. And then everything changed just a few weeks later. Back to the present, though. These new and upcoming releases are simply stunning. The Chardonnays are unique wines with tons of mountain structure, while the 2015 Merlot offers more immediacy than most Mayacamas wines. And then there are the Cabernets. Both vintages I tasted are stratospheric. Winemaker Braiden Albrecht and Consulting Winemaker Andy Erickson are doing brilliant work in restoring Mayacamas to its place as one of Napa Valley's elite properties. These wines are positively stunning."
