This is the basic Cabernet in Myriad's lineup. A stunning wine if not at the level of the single vineyard offerings. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, slight tobacco, leather, spice and char. Full bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, great balance. Lots of cassis with black pepper and underlying char. Long finish. This is not a fruit monster but it is a bigger wine. At age 5, it is barely showing much development, but is still enjoyable. Ideally, cellar for five more and then drink for fifteen to twenty after that.
