@Mike Smith slaying it again. Definitely hogged the whole bottle except for half a glass....

Deep purplish red. Tons of dark fruit, blue and black with spices. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and full bodied. Rich and voluptuous with tons of black and blueberries. Solid spices, cinnamon and nutmeg. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2028.

Last of the Mike Smith wines and tasted blind. Decanted for over four hours.

Deep and dark purplish red. Layered nose with black fruits like boysenberries with lots of baking spices, especially brown sugar and even hydrangeas. Just a touch of heat on the palate but tannins were silky and moderate (6/10). Full bodied with great structure for being so young. Sweeter fruits on the palate with tons of black and blue berries. Good amount of cinnamon and nutmeg. Long and lingering finish. This will definitely benefit from a few years in the bottle. Drink from 2018 till 2030.

Guessing time. This wine had characteristics that were similar to both one and two. 1. The amount of blue and black fruits on the the nose and palate reminded us on wine one, making us think 2014. 2. There was more complexity on the nose and more structure on the palate which made us think that it was made in a similar style to that of wine two, making us think Myriad. So we guessed...2014 Myriad Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Picked up a ton of tannins on the finish since bottling. Let 'em rest for a year or so.
