Winemaker Notes

The 2014 Materium might be the most aromatic to date. Notes of violets, red/black fruits, pain grille, smoke and truffle dominate. The acidity also makes for a mouthwatering experience, leading to the desire for another sip. The wine rests lightly on the palate, coating without tiring the taste buds. Even darker than the Amoenus, Materium possesses a saturated-to-the-rim opacity. Inevitably, this vintage will ever be compared to the 2013, but for nearer term drinking, the 2014 is ideal. The vintage has provided wines of greater transparency — wines marked more by site and varietal than by vintage characteristics. It is something Maybach always strives for in its Pinots and Chardonnays, but it can also be hugely beneficial for Bordeaux varietals. It would be easy to debate these two vintages for hours, a nice problem to have with two wines as great as the 2013 and 2014 Materium.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The flagship, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, represents 560 cases and achieved 14.8% alcohol after aging in 90% new Taransaud and Darnajou casks. Remarkably, the wine matches the perfect 2013, with extraordinary fragrance of blueberry, blackberry, forest floor, truffle, spring flowers and background barbecue smoke followed by a thick, unctuously textured, juicy, but incredibly well-balanced, intense wine. This is built like a skyscraper with enormous quantities of blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, well-integrated acidity and sweet, gentle tannins. This is an extraordinary effort from Maybach that can be drunk now or cellared for up to 30 or more years.

Jeb Dunnuck
Like the 2013, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium is another perfect wine. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 90% new barrels, it offers an extraordinary bouquet of blueberries and cassis fruit that’s supported by layers of white chocolate, white flowers, toasty oak, and liquid violets. With a deep, saturated purple color, full-bodied richness, incredible elegance and purity, and masses of ripe tannin that are almost hidden by fruit at this early stage, it’s a heavenly, powerful yet graceful 2014 to drink over the coming 2-3 decades.

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.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

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, Malbec and 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.
