Since its inception in 2004, Thomas Rivers Brown has been making Maybach and that is how we first met each other. At that time, he was only making Schrader, Outpost and wine for a few smaller producers. The 2017 vintage marks the eighth release of Maybach Amoenus, which comes from Blossom Creek Vineyard located on the Western side of Calistoga, where the moderating temperatures of the Black Mountain Gap are 10-15 degrees cooler than on the Eastern side of the Calistoga Palisades. This allows for gradual ripening and full maturation. “The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Amoenus isn’t far off what the estate produced in 2016. It’s a pure, full-bodied, powerful 2017 that does everything right. Loads of blueberries, cassis, Asian spice, and flowery incense define the bouquet, and it has a pure, classic, focused style on the palate. I love its purity of fruit, it has ripe, present tannins, and while it needs 2-3 years of bottle age, it’s going to evolve gracefully for 15-20 years.”
