'Made from decades-old dry-farmed vines planted to the Wente clone in rocky, volcanic soils, this is a stunning wine, flinty, fleshy and expansive, with undeniable minerality. Lemon zest, meringue and pear contrast against persistent acidity and a lasting briny tone that lifts the palate further. Enjoy from 2026–2032.' – Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, 96/100 (#7 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2020)

'Mayacamas always delivers such focused and well-crafted chardonnay like this with cooked-apple, pear, light vanilla and seashell character on the palate. It’s tight and super integrated with a tight, creamy palate that goes on for minutes. Serious structure.' – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 94/100

'Ripe and floral in the warm 2018 vintage. The nose gives off notes of pineapple rind, apple blossom and honeysuckle. The palate is fresh and flashy, with flavours of nectarine, roasted pineapples and ocean breeze. A definitive example of a one-of-a-kind California Chardonnay that combines a ripe, sunny and tropical nature with the tension of dry-farmed mountain fruit. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035.' – Matthew Luczy, Decanter, 93/100 (Mar 2020)

'So different from the Kutch Trout Gulch, none of that reductive character, much more peachy with just a hint of oak spice. Full and rounded in the mouth, a little bit floral but with a backbone of citrus freshness to balance the generous fruit. Full bodied but not in the least heavy. Long and flavourful with a sour freshness to finish.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

Producer information John Henry Fisher founded Mayacamas Vineyards in 1889 but it was it’s next owner, Jack Taylor, who named the property to Mayacamas in 1941. In 1968 Bob Travers took over and made Mayacamas into the Californian, world-class winery that it is today. Perched high up on Mt. Veeder, it is located at one of the most beautiful sites in Napa Valley.
