1990 Dalla Valle Maya - I love surprises

There are a lot of legendary wines out there! And there are legendary wines you didn´t knew exist! 1990 Maya was one of these. I don´t know why but for some reason I thought 1992 was the first vintage, and the first really hyped and talked about was the 1994. According to me that is, even though a quick research showed it was the 1986! However I love surprises and especially when they are this good! The theme was to open 1990 Haut-Brion which is another tremendous wine. Yet this one was served blind to me, it wasn´t difficult to end up In Napa showing that ripe dark cherry fruit, the fine aromatic herbaceous spiciness, the powerful structure and great persistency yet this was certainly steeped in a more elegant style showing all the complexity emerging from age. Perfectly aged with great purity and detail, I wine I’d love to drink again, and again…
