Have been super excited to try this. Becklyn has been a standout of the mike smith profile for 2017. Probably my favorite becklyn ever. — a year ago

Myriad Cellars

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Greg Ballington

Tasted side by side with the 15 Becklyn NV and the 15 Quivet NV.

Super dark purplish red. Tight I start in the nose but then opened up with cassis, blackberries and sweet spices. Medium plus (7.5/10) and rounded full body. Dark fruits on the palate with sweet spices, brown sugar, blueberries, aniseed and crushed gravel. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2027. (92+)

Carter Cellars

Weitz Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The highlight of the day, and maybe of the trip, was a personal tasting with @Mike Smith , winemaker of Myriad, Carter, Becklyn, Scarlett, Ancillary and many other well known labels. Mike was kind enough to pour some of his personal label (Myriad Cellars), a Pinot from Ancillary (project he does with Mark Carter) and capped off the tasting with some Carter Cellars. The Myriad Dr Crane Elysian and Carter Weitz Vineyards were standouts of the trip so far. The Weitz Vineyard had great power and energy to it. Like Mike said, he loves making super dark wines...most were almost black in the glass. Love those kinds of wines! Charcoal, blackberry, plum on the nose and palate. Difference between this and the Dr Crane Elysian was the Elysian felt more fruit forward and in your face. Loved the restraint on this. Mike, thanks again for an amazing wine tasting! And @Martin G Rivard , thank you for connecting me with Mike! @Shawn R , good call on having Carter added to our tasting...thanks! — 5 years ago

B Cellars

Star Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Just a few B Cellars left in stock, nice wine but just overpriced for me at $125.00. All the Mike Smith entry level cabs at 60.00 - $70.00 which include Becklyn, Mcgah , Myriad & Scarlett seem to be a better bang for your buck — 4 years ago
