The 2018 Materium comes from the Weitz Vineyard in Oakville and is all Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in mostly new barrels. It's a very different wine than the Amoenus release and has more elegant, seamless aromas and flavors of crème de cassis, black raspberries, tobacco leaf, flowery incense, and sandalwood. Château Margaux-like in its elegance and complexity, this brilliant wine has loads of sweet fruit, flawless integration of its tannins and acidity, flawless balance, and just a heavenly overall profile that I wish every reader could taste. This extraordinary effort can be drunk today or cellared for 30 years or more. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck. Tasting date: January 27, 2021. Drinking window: 2021-2053.

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Materium Cabernet Sauvignon soars out of the glass with a gorgeous perfume of cinnamon toast, red roses, dusty soil and lavender over a core of warm cassis, kirsch and black raspberries. Full-bodied, rich, plush and oh-so-spicy, it is jam-packed with black and red fruit preserves layers, finishing with a fantastically long, fragrant finish. Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown.

2018 Maybach Family Vineyards Materium Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, California, USA

This represents the 15th vintage we’ve been associated with Weitz Vineyard. Crazy, given it feels like just yesterday I met Chris Maybach and he mentioned having access to this site. I knew exactly where he was talking about and though we made a cursory visit to walk the vineyard and discuss the beginning of the project, we were in as soon as we received the offer. A+ fruit like this doesn’t come along very often especially to a brand new project. We’ve run out of superlatives to describe wines from this property. It has been so consistently great throughout the years even with its very distinctive personality. There are a few wines I’m responsible for every year that stand out blind in any line up. Picking wines in that format has never been a strong suit for me but here it’s easy. There’s something so unique about this bottling. It starts with the white flower, peppery, vanilla-tinged aromatic. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear there was a little Cabernet Franc mixed in with the Cabernet in this 3 acre hilltop block. The sweet black and purple fruits jump start the palate until the acidity of the site kicks in adding cut and a broad, ethereal feel that’s uncommon in hillside Napa Cabernet. The acidity keeps the mouthfeel juicy and fresh. The real complexity kicks in on the finish with blackcurrant liqueur, crushed rock, milk chocolate, cassis, blueberries and smoke all balanced by a streak of minerality that extends through the whole palate experience. This edition of Materium easily competes with all the great vintages that have come before it.
