2005 Maybach Materium....$159.99 / 750ml
(just 3 bottles left)
Named after the super-luxury car of the same name, the extraordinary 2005 Materium (614 cases) has more in common with a first-growth like Chateau Margaux than a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with a striking bouquet of blue and black fruits intermingled with acacia flowers, lead pencil shavings, and licorice, excellent fruit, medium to full body, substantial but sweet tannins, and compelling harmony among its acidity, alcohol, tannin, and extract. This sensational 2005 eclipses even the brilliant 2004. It should easily last 25 or more years. Maybach’s Materium cuvee, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillside Weitz Vineyard in the Oakville sector of Napa, east of the Silverado Trail, is made by the highly respected Thomas Brown.

2009 Maybach Materium...$159.99 / 750ml
2009 Maybach Materium...$84.99 / 375ml
(Just 2 bottles left of each)
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium is a gorgeous, polished wine graced with exquisite detail, clarity and focus. Tobacco, cedar and sweet spices add complexity to the fruit in this powerful, expressive 2009. Layers of dark red fruit, mocha and mint wrap around the striking, seamless finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019.
Maybach fans will note the introduction of a new wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Blossom Creek Vineyard in Calistoga named Amoenus, which is Latin for “landscape of the mind.” Both Cabernets spend 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Thomas Rivers Brown is the winemaker.
