Lot #2576. Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon 1978

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 AG.
"The 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon is quite simply one of the greatest Napa Valley wines I have ever tasted. Dark, powerful and explosive, the 1978 captivates all the senses with intense dark fruit, tobacco, smoke, cedar and licorice. Utterly mesmerizing from the very first taste, the 1978 shows no signs of fading. The firm tannins ensure another decade-plus of magical drinking. Readers fortunate enough to own well-stored bottles are in for an extraordinary drinking experience on a par with any wine from anywhere in the world. It's as simple as that. The 1978 remains a testament to the genius of Bob Travers and this rugged hillside site on Mt. Veeder." Vinous, Jun 2014
Notes: Base neck, very lightly scuffed capsule, nicked and lightly damp stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $300
