(two-thirds cabernet sauvignon and one-third cabernet franc): Good bright, dark red-ruby. Cassis and powerful graphite minerality dominate the nose. Sappy, strong and deep, with terrific intensity and a very firm spine to the flavors of dark berries, crushed rock, cocoa powder and spices. Dense, large-scaled and mouthfilling yet light on its feet. This impressive wine's serious tannins call for extended aging.

The 2009 Maya (67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Cabernet Franc) has opened-up considerably and is much more showy than I would have expected. It exhibits notes of sweet creme de cassis, camphor, bouquet garni, spice box and a hint of road tar. Full-bodied with remarkable density as well as a multidimensional personality, and abundant, well-integrated tannins, this 2009 can be approached now, but it should be even better in 5-7 years. It should last for three decades or more.

A classy effort that delivers richness and density, with layers of dark berry fruit, spice, cedar, espresso and black licorice, firming with fine-grained tannins and a finish that offers elegance, finesse and structure.
