June 199796-98 The terrific 1995 Maya is cut from the same mold as all the great Mayas of this decade. Its tannin may be even riper than in the 1994, but the wine is still an unevolved, massive, and unformed giant, although it is obvious that this will be another legendary effort. Do readers ever wonder why wines such as these are never made in 100,000 case lots?
November 15, 200295 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. Needs time to soften the tough edges, but all the ingredients are there for greatness. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2005 through 2013. 440 cases made.

July 199993+ Deep ruby. Floral aromas of blackberry, cassis and mint, plus a pungent oak note of mace. Less dense than the '96 but extremely intensely flavored and penetrating. Fruit-driven wine, less sweet than the '96 despite a flavor of dark chocolate. Gives an impression of higher acidity, like so many '95s. Tannins are currently a bit spiky and in need of cellaring.
