International Wine Report (Jan. 2021) Review of 2018 Mythicvs, Paradise Hills Vineyard


Review by Joe D’Angelo

Rating: (98)

The 2018 Mythicvs Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship wine from Blankiet. It is a selection of the best lots of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Paradise Hills Vineyard, and it is utterly brilliant in this vintage. As this unwinds in the glass, it releases stunning aromatics of ripe blueberries and blackcurrants which are laced with graphite, violets, tobacco, and exotic spices nuances which evolves beautifully. On the palate, this possesses a gorgeous full body, that is impeccably structured, refined, and well-polished, with outstanding overall depth and focus. This continues to impress as it displays remarkable poise and finesse all the way through the seamless finish. The 2018 is already showing plenty appeal in its youth, however this should become even more compelling with some additional bottle age and go on to to have a brilliant future, as it ages gracefully for decades to come.
