Winemaker Notes:  Ever the philosophical wine, with every sip the 2019 Maya reveals new layers of complexity and depth, invoking thoughts of a mysterious and intriguing destination. The firmness of the Maya's Cabernet is boosted and lifted by the black olive and dried herbal tones of the Cabernet Franc. Boysenberry, crushed gravel, and violet come to the forefront before revealing deeper layers of the black and blue fruits, lingering through an extended finish but at the same time maintains an ethereal status that dances on the palate.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc


Jeb Dunnuck - "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!"

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "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!"

James Suckling - "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."
