    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pure Maya! Sweet, ripe fruit and a full, round mouth feel. Big massive, muscular wine and still a bit closed. Pronounced fruit with mineral components. The wine is austere and has lots of sophistication. Less acid, more oak, and excellent tannin management.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Close to perfection, the saturated blue/black-colored 1997 Maya exhibits complex aromatics of creme de cassis, smoke, spice box, iron, and espresso. The wine has a viscous texture, huge, concentrated, ripe fruit, remarkable body, and a seamless, multi-layered finish. The tannin, acidity, and alcohol are all beautifully integrated. This is profound stuff! Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.

    Saturated full ruby. Explosive aromas of blackberry, black cherry, bitter chocolate, camphor, black licorice and violet. Extremely dense and thick without being heavy. Superb flavor intensity and depth. The thoroughly ripe tannins coat the entire palate. The slow-mounting, extremely long finish offers wonderful grip and vibrancy. A great vintage for Maya.
