1988 Dalla Valle "Maya" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #900972 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1988 Maya, made from a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc, has a dense, very opaque black/purple color, a huge bouquet of super-ripe cassis, licorice, and vanillin aromas, followed by astonishingly intense, highly extracted, impeccably well-balanced, full-bodied flavors. The bad news is that only 200 cases were produced, so latching onto a bottle or two will not be easy. It should drink well over the next 20-25 years, probably longer. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/1993)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sweet tobacco, licorice, new leather, smoke and savory herbs meld together in the 1988 Maya. Now fully mature in its bouquet, the 1988 still has more than enough fruit and density to drink well for a handful of years, although I wouldn't push my luck. Dried orange peel, tobacco and wild flowers take on mature, Barolo-like overtones on the finish. Inner quote mark (6/2014)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and elegant, with tight currant, plum and cherry flavors that hang in there on the finish. Has plenty of tannins, but is better balanced than many '88s. Inner quote mark (11/1991)
