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.

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! - 100 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
