Issue Issue 138

($110; 100% cabernet sauvignon, from a vineyard above Dalla Valle, planted on similar cobbly red soil) Lovely perfume to the slightly exotic aromas of smoky raspberry, plum and spices. Sweet, dense, chewy and broad, but with firm acidity giving shape and aromatic lift to the berry, spice and floral flavors. Winemaker Thomas Brown noted that it was necessary to let the fruit hang for a long time to get thorough ripeness, even at the risk of picking a few raisins. And yet this retains a juicy quality and displays lovely lingering perfume.

Named after the super-luxury car of the same name, the extraordinary 2005 Materium (614 cases) has more in common with a first-growth like Chateau Margaux than a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with a striking bouquet of blue and black fruits intermingled with acacia flowers, lead pencil shavings, and licorice, excellent fruit, medium to full body, substantial but sweet tannins, and compelling harmony among its acidity, alcohol, tannin, and extract. This sensational 2005 eclipses even the brilliant 2004. It should easily last 25 or more years.

Taut yet ripe, with rich currant, blackberry and black cherry fruit that's well-structured, with cedary oak and firm tannins that grip and hold. Decant.

Saturday night, I hosted a small blind tasting of some recent 2005 cali cab purchases to determine my future purchasing preferences. The three wines were: Buccella Cabernet, Maybach Materium & Corra Cabernet. Previously I had only tasted the 2004 Corra by itself and absolutely loved the wine. This time I wanted to see if Corra was really that good as well as determine if I will be purchasing the other two wines in the future. Four of us tasted and completed a simple ranking from 1 (best) to 3 (worst). The results were as follows: (5pts) 2005 Corra Cabernet Even blind the Corra performed as I expected, unbelievable. The nose was a beautiful mixture of fresh berries and floral notes. It had layer upon layer of flavors, none overpowering the next. The strength of this wine is the subtle finesse of all the components in complete harmony. Corra will definitely continue to be a part of my cellar. (7pts) 2005 Buccella Cabernet The Buccella was a close second in everyone's opinion. It was masculine in comparison to the feminine style of Corra. This wine was almost chewy in consistency with a rich core of fruit. I enjoyed this wine thoroughly, yet I question the future direction of the wine without Mark Herold at the helm. Anyone know what vintage was his last? (12pts) 2005 Maybach Materium Finally and probably the most disappointing for me was the Maybach. The wine was very tannic and austere. You could tell that it would age for awhile; however, I kept asking myself if I didn't like the base components now would I like them aged? It was a good wine, yet not in the company of the other two. At the $100+ range, I expected more and will spend my money elsewhere the next time. Overall, it was a wonderful night of good wine that helped fine-tune my ever expanding annual cabernet purchase that I keep failing to contain.

Dark ruby in color with a haze of cloudiness, this wine has an intense nose of tobacco, sweet oak, and dark plum aromas. In the mouth it is bright and juicy with cherry, cola, and sweet pipe tobacco flavors that linger in a very nice finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
