International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($185) Bright ruby. Superripe, deep aromas of cassis, black plum, black cherry, bitter chocolate, espresso and violet; more perfumed today than the Napa bottling. Then very ripe, broad and seamless, with the violety cabernet franc character giving life to the middle palate. Vibrant and complex but still quite youthfully unevolved. Expands subtly and impressively on the back half, finishing with firm, refined tannins and sappy berry flavors. This really dances on the palate.

Even more prodigious is the 2001 Maya, a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc. A modern day legend, it boasts complex notes of cedarwood, sauteed porcini mushrooms, camphor, graphite, creme de cassis, kirsch and forest floor. The heavenly aromas are followed by a broad, deep, full-bodied, opaque purple-colored wine with a full-bodied mouthfeel and moderately high tannins. Still a baby at age 10, it needs another 4-5 years of cellaring and should age effortlessly for 30-40 years thereafter. This is a modern day classic!

Still very tight and tannic. Bordeaux-like in its structure and mix of dark berry, cedar, graphite and tobacco, ending with chewy tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2016. 300 cases made.

Garnet in color. Slow legs. berry spicy pungent aroma and flavor. Medium/Full bodied. Linear texture. Medium finish. I think its always a unique experience when one gets to drink a maya. 2001 is not one of my favorite vintages for them. I think the wine would have benefited greatly from longer decanting.

Deep red colored wine with moderately pigmented legs. Fleeting aromas of chlorine, traces of game and leather, baker?s chocolate, oak, and cherry ? the wine shut down hard after a few hours of airing. Excellent acidity but the tannins while reasonably supple are quite strong. Good mouthfeel with taut fruit. An austere Maya that needs a decade in the cellar to develop. Only appreciable right now as an intellectual exercise.
