International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 85

Saturated ruby. Expressive nose of plum, currant, tar and tobacco; the only one of this range that beginning to show real development. Sweet, dense and pliant, with superb inner-mouth flavors. Finishes very long and ripely tannic. The harmonious acids extend the fruit. The '91 may yet surpass this wine, but the '90 has been a sentimental favorite of mine since the outset.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 89

The 1990 Maya (almost equal proportions of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon) is a monster in the making. Its super-saturated, opaque black/ruby color is followed by a tight but promising nose of earth, cassis, smoke, and gobs of sweet fruit. In the mouth it is even richer, as well as more tannic than the regular Cabernet. The finish is long, sweet, and compelling.
