Maybach on Deck

#1 Post by David Kaufman » January 14th, 2019, 7:54 pm

From the save the date email this morning. One of my favorite producers. Who else is buying next week?

Greetings from the Winery.

With pleasure we announce our upcoming annual release.
Time: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 -- NOON (EST)

Wines:
2016 Materium Cabernet
2016 Amoenus Cabernet
2017 Eterium Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
2017 Irmgard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Our updated website will launch and active mailing list members will receive email invitations with login information. Allocations vary depending on seniority and order history, with a wish-list function in case of any extra.

Magnums are available either with or without wood boxes, priced accordingly.

Weather permitting, shipping is scheduled to start the week of March 25 and continue through early April.

Thank you all, and we look forward to seeing you on the 22nd!
-Chris Maybach

I'm definitely in. Always excited for this one. And the first time in a few years that the release didn't fall on a day I was traveling 😁

As much as I would buy if I got an allocation, I guess I’m still on the waiting list. How long does it take to get on the allocation mailing list?

Last year
Materium was $195 for 750mL $105 for .375 IIRC
Amoenous was $165
Not sure about the pinot/chard but I think around $75

I signed up fall 2015 and got my first allocation last year

Chardonnay was $90 last year. I don't know about the Pinot Noir. Prices for the Cabs look right, and magnums of Materium were $445 (without the wood box).

I'm really hoping to not see an increase ... I love the wines, but $200+ for the Materium will give me some pause, at least on the number of bottles I buy.

Quality wise I think this might be the best Cali Cab I buy. Beats out Schrader every time I put them next to each other.

Too much, too soon with everything coming out within two weeks of each other.

Serious thoughts on which allocations to pass on as these add up super quick.
It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.

Aubert and Maybach are the two most expenive single wine orders I make each year, and having them within the same month is definitely painful. I've cut back on a lot of stuff, but those two remain. (And Rivers-Marie, but those are such a comparative bargain that it feels like they barely count.)

These purchases are a bit easier knowing that I am 100% sticking to my plan of not buying any 2017's (other than Maybach, Scarecrow and MacDonald to stay on the list). I am in need of having a "year off" to prepare for epic 18's that will soon enough be coming along... I immediately deleted all the 2017 Myriad Crane Elysian emails (I guess it dropped today?)... So far, so good!

Have passed on more lists in the last 6 months than I ever recall. Having purchased Schrader since the 2001 vintage, passing was a tough choice this year, but the right choice. Still hace about 6 cases in the cellar.
Will not pass on Maybach, just enjoyed evey year since their first too much.

Based on previous years (on Cellartracker):

2015 - 96.9
2014 - 97.9
2013 - 97.9
2012 - 96

I think I can safely say you and anyone getting their first allocation is good to go. No CT notes on 2016 and 2017.
This space for rent.

Thanks, I'm sure they will score high given the vintage and history.

Order in
My allocation went up a bit this year... (I didn't take near all of it)
Added a .375mL - love that they offer this format of the Materium!

Great to see no price increase on the 750 Materium, although a small ($20) increase on the mag.

So, still an “easy” buy for me.

Ditto. Bought 3 750 ml and 2 375 ml. Checked out and it sends it to vinfillment. Then they did not show a charge for shipping to vinfillment. Worried now. I wonder if vinfillment will send me an invoice for $58 now

Ordered! Mostly Materium, with a bit of Amoenus and Eterium. I too love the 375s, but I only grabbed two because the sticker shock was already severe.

I didn't play around with too many different quantities (such as 3 bottles), but a case to TX was $68, or $5.67 a bottle. In my experience, that's an excellent price for 2-day air; I often see charges of $8, $10, or even more per bottle from other wineries.

Glad to receive this offer. Grabbed a couple Amoenus and a Materium. Jan/Feb is always tough on the wine budget. Saving pennies for Realm on Feb 5.
