Dalla Valle Vineyards Maya 1992 (1500ml)

$1599

...It reveals a saturated purple color, as well as an intense fragrance of black-raspberries, cassis, flowers, and minerals. The wine possesses great fruit, superb density, wonderful purity and balance, and a compelling extra dimension both aromatically and texturally. It is destined to be one of California's legendary wines. Robert Parker

Massive fruit component, upon opening and trying this wine needed air. We decanted this for 90 minutes and then it started expressing itself. Deep dark dense with loads of black fruits! Really amazing for its age. I give this 24 plus year old wine a Solid 95 Rating. Thanks Fred!!

We found this bottle in my father in laws cellar and frankly didn’t know what it was at first. Apparently this was one of the original Cali cult wines...which had me pretty skeptical, though at “only” 13.5% alcohol I was left with some hope that it would not be an overripe jam bomb disaster. My ending verdict is that it’s actually quite nice, especially with some air. Lots of berry fruit, in a way that is certainly a bit over extracted. But this has mouth watering acidity - even after nearly 30 years - that really keeps this together, along with some nice lifting menthol at the end. Nice.

Finally a great bottle of Maya... Had bad luck recently with off bottles. One of my favorites.

Dark, brooding, and tannic. I wasn't the greatest fan of the heaviness of this wine, but clearly they were swinging for the fences.
