Review by Stephen Tanzer
(100% Cabernet Sauvignon): Bright ruby-red. Knockout Cabernet nose combines currant, licorice menthol and wild herbs; brooding but not overly dark. Utterly seamless and glossy on the palate yet at the same time sharply delineated, with outstanding floral lift to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. For all its early sex appeal and noble tannins, this wonderfully sappy, extremely long wine is very backward today and in need of extended aging. An addition to the range, the Mythicus is a new 100% Cabernet Sauvignon bottling that debuts in 2012.
