2006 Maybach Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Materium-USA, California, Napa Valley, Oakville (4/14/2008)Barrel sample at NYC open house 4/14/2008- The color is super garnet. The palate explodes with red fruits of plum, cherries and tar. There is some nice cassis notes present. This is a very elegant & classy wine. A real show-stopper. Pure fruited and extremely clean. Very different from the '04 and the '05. This will set a new high for this rock star wine... (96 pts.)
My first ever 1+ hour after taste. I was still tasting this wine on the bus ride home. My mouth felt like it was coated with glycerin!
