Rated 99-100 Points by Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)

The opaque purple-colored 1996 Maya, which utilizes 50%-60% new oak, reveals awesome aromatics consisting of unreal levels of cassis, Asian spices, earth, and smoked herb and meaty scents. There is spectacular concentration in this compellingly layered, multidimensional, full-bodied wine that should have an almost immortal quality when it is released at the turn of the century. I suspect it will be a 30-year wine, although the sweet tannin suggests it will be accessible young, something that cannot be said for many other Maya vintages.
Rated 98/100 Points by Wine Spectator
Wonderfully seductive. This year's version of this preeminent Cabernet blend is enormously rich and concentrated, beautifully fine-tuned and integrated, with bold, ripe, complex currant, black cherry, spice, earth, mineral and cedary oak. Best from 2001 through 2009. 500 cases made.

Rated 95/100 Points by Stephen Tanzer (Vinous)

Saturated ruby. Very ripe, perfumed aromas of blackcurrant and chocolate; much deeper than the Napa Valley bottling. Dense, ripe and broad, but remarkably filled in and consistent for a wine from the '96 vintage. Shows an almost port-like chocolatey ripeness, but has enough supporting acidity to keep the flavors fresh and delineated. Finishes with seductively lush, suave tannins. Compelling wine.
