    Winemaker Notes

    Smooth, medium-to-full bodied entry opens nicely on the palate to reveal waves of rich black cherry, cassis spice and creamy oak. The powerful fruit flavors and well-balanced, firm tannins carry through for a long savory finish.

    Big Max, California
    In 1942, the last Brown Bear was spotted in Northern California…at least that’s what we thought. Turns out that the kids who attended the Bar 49 Summer Camp on the Keith Family land (now known as Maxville) had a run in with a Brown Bear in the 60’s. He was legendary, the stuff of folklore…the subject of campfire circle stories for decades. His name was Big Max. The 1,000-acre Maxville Lake property is nestled within the Vaca Mountains in the Chiles Valley District of Napa Valley, California. In the 1960s, the land was used to host a nature-focused summer camp for children. Grapes were planted on the property in 1974, as part of the camp's agricultural program. Recognizing the quality of the grapes, a winery was built there in 1996, along with an extensive underground cave that can accommodate 2,000 barrels of wine. Maxville Lake purchased the property in 2014 and harvested its first vintage of grapes from the estate vineyards. They renovated the entire winery to be a cutting edge, state-of-the-art facility. The area's volcanic soil, high elevation and unique climate provide ideal grape-growing conditions. Maxville wines are hand-crafted by executive winemaker George Bursick, and are wines of remarkable quality and consistency.

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast California wine district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the Central Coast California wine region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few Central Coast reds and whites. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
