The 1995 Maya is a bit like the 1991 in that the aromas are maturing, while the fruit retains a very classic sense of Maya breadth. Sweet tobacco, cedar, incense, dried flowers and worn-in leather add nuance to the resonant finish. The 1995 has enough depth to drink well for at least another handful of years, but I wouldn't push my luck too much beyond that. At this point, it is pretty clear the tannins are always going to retain an element of firmness. (AG)
Perfumed red currant, cherry, anise and a sort of melted-chocolate aroma. It's firm, tight and concentrated, yet elegant in its own way, with tannins that are in balance and a long, detailed finish that shows off a minerally quality. (JL, Web Only-2005)
The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an opaque blue/black/purple color, followed by sweet cassis aromas intermingled with scents of earth, spice, smoke, and grilled meats. This dense, powerful, muscular, concentrated wine provides an enormous mouthfeel. Wineries need more than luck to produce multi-dimensional wines with this concentration, ripeness, sweetness of fruit, and overall intensity and complexity. Tasted in barrel. (RP)
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.
