International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 85

Excellent deep ruby. Brooding aromas of black plum, black cherry, shoe polish and alluring oak. Very intensely flavored and vibrant; surprisingly high-pitched, even a bit hard, following the nose. This offers terrific lift. Finishes very long and firm but slightly clenched. A tougher style of Maya, still rather youthfully unevolved.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 96

The 1991 Maya (made from equal proportions of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon) has developed incredibly since I tasted it nearly a year ago and rated it 94. The wine is black/purple-colored and offers up a compelling bouquet of flowers, minerals, black fruits, vanilla, and spices. There is huge extraction of fruit, full body, outstanding purity and balance, moderate tannin, and a tremendous layered feel on the palate. All of this intensity and richness is brilliantly pulled off without any sense of heaviness. I can understand wanting to drink this wine immediately as it is an extraordinarily impressive young wine, but it should be given another 4-6 years of cellaring; it is a candidate for 25 years of aging. It is also a strong candidate for a three-digit score in a few years. This is a winemaking tour de force!

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Wonderfully fresh and perfumed, with currants, blackberries and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a firm, fruity finish. Fading a little.

Vinous Author: Antonio Galloni

The 1991 Maya is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years, as the aromatics are starting to enter a fully tertiary phase of their development. Sweet tobacco, leather, pine and menthol all linger on the silky, expressive finish. The 1991 isn't the most powerful Maya, but it is among the most refined and polished.
