Red Proprietary Blend
Producer Notes

From vineyards set 400 feet above the floor of Napa Valley, two critically-acclaimed powerhouse wines are crafted. Both the Cabernet Sauvignon (which includes just a touch of estate Cabernet Franc) and the Maya (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) showcase Oakville fruit in its most concentrated intensity.

Issue Issue 156

(a 60/40 blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc): Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, blueberry, licorice, violet and graphite on the soil-driven nose. Wonderfully silky and elegant on the palate; dense, lush and concentrated, with superb mouthfilling aromatic character. Terrific fruit intensity here, and already impeccably balanced. Expands and perfumes the mouth on the extremely long, suavely tannic back end. A beauty.

The 2008 Maya boasts an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of blue, black and red fruits, crushed rock, spice box, licorice and subtle wood. Full-bodied, multilayered, pure and deep, this is a striking, seamless wine with flawless balance and great concentration as well as length. Multiple dimensions, incremental richness and a 45-second finish suggest this beauty is one of the top wines of the vintage.

Strikingly complex, rich and creamy, this is impressive for its subtlety and finesse, with a firm yet fleshy core of currant, blackberry, black licorice, graphite and blueberry. Full-bodied, ending with a long, pure, persistent finish.

After the 2007, the 2008 Maya comes across as quite bombastic. Black cherry, plum, smoke, new leather and spices all hit the palate in an awkward Maya with more than enough intensity and pure voluptuousness to match its flashy personality. The long and dry season yielded a somewhat obvious, coarse Maya.

drinking extremely well in its infancy. Fruity but very elegant, not at all tannic, long finish. Some hints of mint, blueberry. Complex nose.

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.
