The 2014 Maya is powerful, compact and closed in on itself. That's not much of a surprise given the wine was just bottled a few months ago. Dark, powerful and intense, the 2014 offers plenty of energy, but is also holding back much of its potential at this stage. The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, which is to say more Cabernet than has been the norm in recent years. There is plenty of intensity to the pomegranate, plum, red cherry and blood orange flavors, but the wine needs time to come into its own.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2039
82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc. Candied fruit – rhubarb, blackcurrant sweets – plus clove and anise spice. Loads of flavour intensity through the palate, and very fine chalky tannin. Plenty of volume and weight on the finish. Napa through and through! (RH)
