Issue Issue 144

($200; an 85/15 blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc) Good medium ruby. Suave, claret-like nose offers black cherry, bitter chocolate, graphite, violet and cocoa powder. Lush, sweet, fine-grained and pure, with a distinct mineral element contributing energy to the middle palate. Fruity, primary and very stylish wine, finishing with a fine dusting of tannins that make the regular Napa Valley bottling seem a bit tough by comparison. The percentage of cabernet franc was so low, said proprietor Naoko Dalla Valle, because the team thinned the vines too much for fear that the fruit wouldn't get ripe and ultimately harvested a very small crop during one of the estate's latest harvests ever. Dalla Valle's top Maya vintages of the 1990s generally featured about 45% cabernet franc.

The 2006 Maya possesses sweet black cherry and berry fruit intertwined with licorice and loamy soil nuances. This soft, round, easy-going, atypically forward, accessible Maya can be consumed over the next 10-15 years.

Drink Dates 2010-2017

Tight, firm and structured, with a rich, focused beam of blackberry, black cherry, currant, herb and anise. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, this unfolds slowly and enticingly to reveal extra dimensions of complexity and nuance, getting better with every sip. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
