Rather inexpressive today but already displays a wonderfully lush texture and a deep minerality that reminded me of a Saint-Emilion from the c o tes The building, serious tannins come across as less sweet than those of the 2007 Maya bottling, and this wine will also require time to integrate its oak.

91 points "The 2000 Maya (a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc) is a medium-weight, elegant effort displaying spice box, incense, loamy soil, dried herb, creme de cassis, and smoky oak characteristics. Medium-bodied, lovely, and forward, it will drink well for 8-12 years. Barrel Tasting 94-96 pts Parker: Notes of melted licorice intermixed with creme de cassis, espresso, and roasted herbs jump from the glass of the profound 2000 Maya. It is a wine of elegance, complexity, great balance as well as intensity, and low acidity. It will drink surprisingly well young. It is a brilliant effort for this difficult year. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020. " Best 2003-2015
