    September 10, 2022 - Cassis, red fruits and some bell pepper on the nose. On the palate, very nice texture and a decent finish. It's not the 100 pt wine as rated by Vinous, but still very nice and one of the better wines from that vintage.

    August 2, 2022 - Popped and poured and drank out of plastic cups lol. Deep, pale red, with high toned Cabernet aromatics. Earthy bay leaf, leather, forest floor. Flavors are complex and layered, bright berry and chalky minerality. Not surprisingly reminds me of the recent Promontory wines made in neutral casks. It has a concentration and richness that isn't driven by oak or overripe-ness. It's like a sweet, simmering, dried cranberry sauce! Introspective, thought provoking and tasty.

    June 23, 2022 - Agree with prior tasting notes. Lean to mid weight and has those green herbaceous notes. Short finish. More interesting on the nose. I’m a fan of Galloni but can’t see why he rated this 100 points. I bought 3 bottles have 2 more. Even at $140/bottle not worth the money. Truly disappointed

    June 19, 2022 - An interesting, enjoyable wine. Rather lean for Napa, with a medium dark color, nose showing cherry and resin, herbs. A midweight Cabernet with good acidity and a solid tannic structure, the Mayacamus is notable for its balance and sense of site. I like it very much, but at the same time felt that it gives some sense of Napa trying to be Bordeaux, and is a touch less ripe and less flavorful than my preferred style of Napa mountain red.

    June 11, 2022 - Subtle, understated wine; would not have guessed it as CA (and perhaps not even as a straight-ahead cab) if tasted blind. Agree with others re green herbs, light front palate -- fascinated by Galloni perfect score and description as I strained to find it knowing the details and really could not. Will let the remaining 3 sit for a while and see what comes.
