    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dense garnet to violet, viscous mouth feel. Bright ripe fruit, beautiful floral and intense dark fruit aromas that are expansive in the mouth and evocative of sweet violets, raspberries, blackberries and some woodsy notes. The wine is rich and dense with an excellent balance of black fruit to tannins. Completely balanced. Overall impression is of lots of fruit and lots of tannins with lots of layers and depths. Unified and seamless, elixir like.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 1994 Maya is prodigious. The color is saturated opaque purple. The wine offers up restrained but gorgeously sweet earth, oak, mineral, and black fruit aromas. Full-bodied, with substantial quantities of glycerin and extract, this wine's large-scaled tannin seems to be well-submerged beneath the wine's fabulous layers of fruit. Although more accessible than I would have thought prior to bottling, it is a candidate for 20-30 years of evolution.

    The Wine Advocate

    Very saturated dark ruby. Superripe but rather unforthcoming aromas of violet, blackberry and shoe polish; this rather inky, dense wine is in the process of shutting down. Remarkably sweet in the middle palate, with a ripe note of chocolate. Deeper-pitched than the '95. Finishes with slightly edgy tannins and superb persistence.
