MAILING LIST ALERT: Maybach Materieum

For those of you anxiously awaiting the 2006 release of the Maybach Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, your wait is over. Even though my e-mail is still not functioning properly, I logged in to Maybach's website and saw my allocation sitting there for 6 bottles. Unfortunately, I could only go in for 3 bottles, but hope to go in for the other 3 once pay day hits, but we will see. With 2006 being our anniversary year, and not being able to afford first growth Bordeaux fo the 2006, this is pretty much a no brainer. I picked up a 6 pack of the 2005's thanks to Chris, and those are still sleeping comfortably in the cellar, and will continue to sleep for some years to come. Unfortuantely, it looks as though their list is full, but you can still sign up for their waiting list at: Also, visit for more details. 2006 MAYBACH MATERIUM100% Cabernet Sauvignon 745 cases produced 80% new French oak 14.8% alc. 2006 MateriumRobert Parker Review THIRD RELEASE of Maybach Materium, from a single block of the Weitz Vineyard, which sits at 1000 feet elevation on the eastern hillside of Oakville, a bonded growing area unique in all the world. The vines here struggle to grow among boulders and stones and in shallow soil, giving deep concentration to the fruit.
