Good full ruby-red. Complex aromas of crystallized berries, tobacco leaf and smoky, spicy oak; doesn't wear its oak as gracefully as the wines since 1994. Then full and sweet in the mouth, with a ripeness verging on raisiny. The roasted note repeats on the long finish. In the style of the '96, but without quite the depth of fruit of the later wine.

The awesome 1992 Maya is performing better than the 1991 did at a similar stage. It reveals a saturated purple color, as well as an intense fragrance of black-raspberries, cassis, flowers, and minerals. The wine possesses great fruit, superb density, wonderful purity and balance, and a compelling extra dimension both aromatically and texturally. It is destined to be one of California's legendary wines.

Smells like Vintage Port with plums and chocolate galore. Full-bodied, with velvety-soft tannins and a long, long finish. Delicious wine.
