International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 85

Saturated ruby. Very ripe, perfumed aromas of blackcurrant and chocolate; much deeper than the Napa Valley bottling. Dense, ripe and broad, but remarkably filled in and consistent for a wine from the '96 vintage. Shows an almost port-like chocolatey ripeness, but has enough supporting acidity to keep the flavors fresh and delineated. Finishes with seductively lush, suave tannins. Compelling wine.

Wine Advocate

The 1996 Maya is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Vivid, intense aromas of new saddle leather, plums, black currants, underbrush, and licorice are followed by a full-bodied, sensationally concentrated wine with sweet tannin, a deep, exceptionally pure and concentrated mid-palate, and an opulently-textured finish. It was surprisingly open-knit and delicious when tasted in October, but there is more tannin lurking beneath the surface.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Bold, ripe and generous. Dark in color, this is very rich and concentrated without being heavy. The flavors are built around ripe blackberry, cherry, mineral and herbal sage notes. Ends with a complex aftertaste and firm but ripe tannins. Easily the best of three bottles.--1996 California Cabernet retrospective.

This wine will continue to age well. Powerful cassis and chocolate with a long finish. Tannins are starting to recede a little. The wine should be decanted for at least an hour before consuming.
