John Turi - Wine, Red Wine

Mayacamas, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007

Wine Rating: 92

Although some wine aficionados will surely disagree and maybe even hold me in contempt for what I’m about to say, I’m saying it anyway and standing by it and here it is: I believe there are only a few wines in California that compare to a Grand-Cru Bordeaux and even the famous Judgment of Paris confirmed that the wine I’m reviewing this month is one of Napa’s best. Their 1971 vintage, which vineyard owner Robert Travers considered not ready for release, placed 9th in the 1976 competition.
