The Mayacamas of late 60s and the 70s were some of the best examples of California cabernet that one could hope for. The chardonnays were also long-lived ( for California chardonnay ), in the flinty style then in vogue. Now, and I regret to say this, it appears as if time has left Bob Travers behind, because his style of wine-making is the antithesis of what is considered the forefront of California winemaking. This is sad, because Bob Travers is really a gentleman, not obsessed with becoming a media darling nor with becoming wealthy. His wines have great QPR, but they talk time. Go there, visit the winery, speak to the man, and sample the wines. His wines are what wines are supposed to be in the world of food.
