• Mayacamas 2002 Napa Valley Chardonnay

Mayacamas Vineyards. One of the distinct joys of established wineries is being able to get occasional access to pockets of their cellar library that they "discover" every now and then. This is one of those pleasant bottles from a stone cellar built in 1889. This is a blast from the early years of the Bush Administration that has aged incredibly well in that stone cellar. The nose shows a light stone fruits with butterscotch and aged citrus and the light hit of secondary note towards raw nuts (oxidation.) The palate is moderate in weight with that sherry nutty note, some stone fruits and a finish that bounces higher with lemon oil. Lovely mature Chardonnay. D&M Tasting Notes

Founded in 1889, Mayacamas stands as one of the most storied vineyard  and winery operations in the history of American wine. Through its more than 125 years of production, Mayacamas has earned its place as a standard-bearer of traditional winemaking, and the source of some of California’s most iconic and longest-lived bottles. Named for mountain range that divide the Napa and Sonoma valleys, the old stone winery was dug into the side of a dormant volcano crater in 1889 and has remained in production ever since. For generations, methods and tools have been passed from owner to owner, and the Mayacamas style has remained remarkably consistent. As the newest owners in a lineage of pioneering caretakers spanning numerous generations, we faithfully steward Mayacamas towards a bright future, ever mindful of the great traditions of the past. Since 2013, our team has worked tirelessly to restore all aspects of the Mayacamas operation, ensuring continued success for this unique American story.  Winery Notes
