"The flagship wine, and one of the first in Napa Valley to emphasize the fabulous potential of Cabernet Franc in specific terroirs, is the 2013 Maya Proprietary Red Wine. This wine usually spends about 22 months in new oak and normally has anywhere from 45% to as much as 60% Cabernet Franc blended with the estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2013 could well be the finest they’ve made to date, and that includes a lot of profound wines. An incredibly complex nose of charcoal embers, blackberry and cassis, some blueberries as well as white flowers, and a touch of forest floor is followed by a full-bodied wine with sweet, well-integrated tannins, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a finish that goes on for close to a minute. This is absolutely remarkable wine – powerful, dense, but at the sane time, precise and elegant. It’s hard to believe, but I think this wine can probably age and improve for 25-40 years. Don’t miss it if you have access to it."
"The 2013 Maya is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (57%) and Cabernet Franc (43%) from the finest Maya vineyard blocks on our estate. It is our attempt to best capture the special quality of our unique terroir. Both varieties sing in harmony in this vintage. From the Cabernet Franc, notes of black licorice, white flowers, and campfire intermingle with the chorus of aromas and flavors that we love from Cabernet Sauvignon: blackberry and cassis, dark chocolate and savory herbs. The signature textural power and subtle aromatic nuance of eastern Oakville is in full force, bringing notes of burning embers, crushed stones, and sagebrush. The structure and density of this vintage will allow the wine to age for decades, and though it is now only in its infancy, this Maya is forward and muscular."
