2016 Blankiet Estate Mythicvs, Paradise Hills Vineyard


A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon selection from the best lots. The darkest of all our wines. Extraordinarily deep with powerful yet refined tannins. A wine for extended cellaring.

    Pure perfection, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mythicvs is all Cabernet Sauvignon from the Paradise Hills Vineyard in Yountville that spent 18 months in 100% new French oak. This monumental effort offers up incredible notes of blueberries, violets, ground herbs, graphite, and spice, and it changes and evolves beautifully with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, refined, and seamless, it cuts a focused path across the palate and carries incredible amounts of fruit and richness while staying seamless, elegant, and finesse-driven. It’s already impossible to resist, but it will benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 2-3 decades. Hats off to winemaker Graeme MacDonald.

    The 2016 ‘Mythicus’ is a completely captivating wine that doesn’t miss a beat. Composed entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Paradise Hills Vineyard this instantly begins to impress with its striking aromas of red and dark currants, fresh spring florals, spices, graphite with underling tobacco leaf nuances.

  • Vinous (Dec. 2018)

    Review by Antonio Galloni

    The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mythicus Paradise Hills Vineyard is a total stunner and one of the great wines of the vintage. Time in barrel has done wonders to marry all the elements. Gracious and soft-spoken, with superb textural finesse, the 2016 captures all the best qualities of this site. Readers should expect a mid-weight, polished Cabernet that is more about persistence than impact. Time in the glass brings out hints of cedar, tobacco and scorched earth and yet the 2016 remains powerful, virile and in need of cellaring. The track record for the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Mythicus is short, but even in the first few vintages I have seen this wine shut down pretty hard after bottling. Readers should be in no rush to open bottles.
