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.

Continuing to crush the ‘14s with reckless abandon. I blame @Mike Smith for making them so delicious.

Once I put the green light on the ‘14s I haven’t been able to stop. Every time I open the cellar nothing else looks as good.

The 2016 Myriad Napa is THE BOMB! Wow. Unbelievably delicious for $65. I love the Myriad Napa every year, but this is even a notch better.

This followed a 2015 Maybach and everyone can’t stop talking about it @Mike Smith what an accomplishment!

Came in last week, finally blew off the dust & opened one.
Wine Advocate 91 seems a little low for me. I thought it was better than Cross Barn by Hobbs & Vineyard 29 Cru.
