The 2014 vintage from Maybach Family Vineyards, specifically their "Materium" Cabernet Sauvignon, is highly regarded for its exceptional quality and complexity. This wine originates from the Weitz Vineyard, located on the eastern hills of Oakville, California—an area renowned for producing powerful and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2014 "Materium" exhibits a deep and rich character, often highlighted by lush notes of blackberries, cassis, and plums, with underlying hints of violets, graphite, and subtle oak. The wine's texture is velvety, offering a well-structured tannin profile that promises excellent aging potential. Typically, critics note its balance and the elegant integration of flavors, which allows for an expressive but refined drinking experience.

This particular vintage has received praise for its depth and ability to convey the unique terroir of the Weitz Vineyard. Collectors appreciate it not only for its immediate appeal but also for its capacity to develop further complexity over time, making it a notable choice for investment and special occasions.

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.

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. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr. Issue date: October 28, 2016. Drinking window: 2016-2046.
