So enjoying this cab. This is seamless, plush, and caresses the palate. Excellent tannic structure is joined by subdued acidity. Great fruit profile of ripe cherries and blueberries. Finishes with coffee notes and nutmeg. Textbook Napa cab, which is drinking perfectly now.
Last evening in Aruba... sniff.

Few words are required here. Brilliant effort from Mike Smith in a challenging year.

15s are progressing along slowly. Still a little tannic and best after a couple hour decant. This has rich black fruits and enough acidity to keep everything lifted as it ends with those present tannins. Best with food. These should improve for several more years.

Yup. Yup. Yup. WOTN so far. Soaring aromas, fresh blackberry, cocoa, lavender. Mouth-coating adventure of dark berry, cracked pepper, maybe even a hint bell pepper, Smooth tannin and linear acid. Awesome.

Looked back at my note from a few weeks ago and it captures it perfectly. As @Leah Smith would say it just has that “Mike Smith Magic”. So true.

Popped In anticipation of this weeks release. These are just ridiculously good and they always show a certain characteristic that is immediately identifiable as Myriad, the best way I can describe it is “weightless”. The wine glides over the palate like pure liquid velvet with everything in great balance. Rich dark fruit, ever present acidity, a kiss of oak, and tannins that have already softened a bit at this early stage.

I’m completely ashamed to say this is my first Myriad. Maybe I can hide it in a second post after midnight on a Saturday night.

Anyways, in terms of Napa Valley economics, $65 for this is a ridiculously absurd deal. Mocha, cassis, currant, with grilled meat, and it’s all tightly woven together with Rutherford Dust. Balance. Length. Savoriness.

What’s hard to articulate in a tasting note, though, is the incredible flavor intensity. This is wine in HD and Surround Sound. My man crush on

While Mike Smith is busy Bottlerocking I was rocking this bottle which is in an awesome spot right now. Has the myriad signature lush fruit profile and the tannins have mellowed to the point where they are barely there. Drink and enjoy while this stays in perfect balance for the next few years.
