International Wine Report (Jan. 2022) Review of 2019 Mythicvs, Paradise Hills Vineyard


Review by Joe D'Angelo

Rating: (100)

The 2019 ‘Mythicvs’ is an absolute masterpiece in this vintage. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the best blocks out of the Paradise Hills Vineyard and is amongst the most compelling wines I taste from Napa every year, the 2019 is no exception. As this begins to open in the glass, it releases incredibly perfumed aromatics of ripe dark currants, blueberries, and black cherries, that are laced together with graphite pencil shavings, exotic spices, charcoal, fresh dark florals, herbs, tobacco, and crushed gravel nuances that all come together beautifully. On the palate, this is full- bodied and graceful, yet impeccably structured, with well-defined, polished tannins. This continues to impress with its wonderful overall concentration, precision, and beautiful pure ripe dark fruits that cascade through the long finish. This is a drop-dead gorgeous wine from Blankiet that is certainly impressive now but is destined for a brilliant future ahead.
