Mayacamas is one of Napa’s most celebrated and historic estates. Its stone winery, constructed in 1889 in the mountainous Mount Veeder appellation, remains in use to this day. And since the 1950s, though ownership has changed several times, little has changed about the winemaking. Winemaker Braiden Albrecht and consulting winemaker Andy Erickson utilize traditional techniques to yield a classic Cabernet style, implementing a combination of cement, open-top foudres and stainless-steel fermentors before aging the Cabernet 32 months in neutral oak (20 months in large foudres and 12 in barriques). The result: a compact wine built on savory charcoal, bay leaf, tar and juniper notes.
