It is remarkable that the Cabernet Franc grown in these red volcanic soils can produce wines of such intensity as well as elegance. Notes of cassis blueberries blackberries espresso smoke earth and vanilla are offered in a full-bodied profoundly concentrated and layered style. For whatever reason the 1999 Maya revealed more forwardness than the Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2024.

Crystallized black cherry violet bitter chocolate and espresso on the nose; conveys great ripeness but also outstanding vibrancy. A silky densely packed wine of great concentration and depth. Extremely young but not hard. Offers great structure and breadth. Finishes with very smooth tannins and great building length. 96+

Massive and concentrated if a bit angular and tightly wound with chewy chunky leather pencil lead currant and herbal flavors that are framed by rugged tannins.
