One of the finest wines in the vintage is the 2019 Maya Proprietary Red Wine and red wine doesn?t get any better. The usual blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Cabernet Franc its deep purple hue is followed by an incredible bouquet of blackcurrants tobacco dark chocolate and crushed stone which turns more floral pretty and complex with time in the glass. Full-bodied on the palate it marries a rare sense of elegance and finesse with incredible intensity. It?s impossible to resist today yet merits at least 5-7 years of bottle age and I have no doubt this beauty will still be enjoyable at age 50. Bravo!

As fans know Maya comes from a very special section of the estate vineyard situated in the valley's eastern foothills below Pritchard Hill and in the above the Oakville floor overlooking Screaming Eagle. The blend is two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color the 2019 Maya slowly unfurls to reveal a firework display of redcurrant preserves kirsch boysenberries and wild blueberries followed by iron ore red roses cardamom fallen leaves and crushed rocks with a waft of pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied the palate is stunningly graceful and refined featuring exhilarating mineral sparks among the red and black fruits finishing with so much brightness and energy. Breathtaking!

The clarity of fruit is so impressive with blackberry and blueberry aromas and so many violets. It?s full-bodied yet tight and reserved with very polished strong tannins that are long and well-formed. There?s freshness and brightness though. A cool and toned young red. Try after 2025.

Bright red/purplish fruit spice blood orange mocha and mint are some of notes that open over time. There is plenty of tannin but it is nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the f
