CG 95 AG (90-92) Pts - According to Connoisseurs Guide - There is no question but that Syrah and Cabernet can, in the right mix, have a real affinity for one and other, but rarely have they been as so very agreeably well-married as they are in this beautifully crafted, extraordinarily deep wine. Running the gamut from blackberries to cassis with elements of sweet oak, cocoa, minerals and dried violets in wonderfully layered support, it exhibits a sense of seriousness and breeding that cannot be missed. It is big, it is young, and it is fairly astringent, but its many important pieces shine though its ample structural tannins, and its careful composition is never in doubt. Find a quiet place for it in the cellar, and by all means let it rest for at least another six to ten years.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Mayote is a big step up from the 2011. Raspberry jam, spices, menthol and new leather all meld together beautifully in the glass. Beams of underlying tannin give the wine its balance and sense of proportion. There is a lot to look forward to here. Mayote is a Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon/Petit Verdot blend. 45% Syrah, 43% Cabernet, 12% Petit Verdot. 14.7% ABV.
