Winemaker's Notes:

Saturated ruby in color, the wine has a crystalline minerality that cuts through the entire experience. It has some nice savory notes of sweet tobacco, camphor and wild mint wrapped around a pure purple fruited core. It's not a weighty wine but one more driven by focus where all the elements present are very clearly delineated.
My Notes:

About Maybach Family Vineyards:

From humble beginnings as a trainee in a German orphanage, Wilhelm Maybach came to invent the high-speed internal combustion engine which led to his creation of the first motorcycle. In 1901, as chief engineer and business partner to Gottlieb Daimler, he designed and built the first Mercedes cars. In later years, Wilhelm's son, Karl Maybach, developed the first high-speed diesel engine and constructed motors for the Zeppelin airships that circled the globe in the 1920's and 30's.

In 2002, Daimler AG revitalized the Maybach brand in recognition of the father and son who together played such a monumental role in defining German engineering.

100 years later, the name Maybach remains synonymous with quality at the finest level. The tradition of individuality and craftsmanship established by the Maybach ancestors, the winery continues to honor with with its hand-made wines.
