Review by Jebb Dunnuck
Pure perfection, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Mythicvs is all Cabernet Sauvignon from the Paradise Hills Vineyard in Yountville that spent 18 months in 100% new French oak. This monumental effort offers up incredible notes of blueberries, violets, ground herbs, graphite, and spice, and it changes and evolves beautifully with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, refined, and seamless, it cuts a focused path across the palate and carries incredible amounts of fruit and richness while staying seamless, elegant, and finesse-driven. It’s already impossible to resist, but it will benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 2-3 decades. Hats off to winemaker Graeme MacDonald.
