2015 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley. $65
Young, singing, plump and generous! An untamed wildness and tons of personality, slide this wine right into the crowd pleaser category. Loaded with fresh ripe fruit and rounded tannins while maintaining a structure & vibrancy so as to avoid being to capacious. Rich layers of red black fruits, licorice, forest floor, powdered cocoa and waves of Rutherford dust show off its plush sweet mid palate. A medium finish brings out all the complexities of Napa Valley pedigree and Mike Smith attention to detail. A joy to drink right now, 6-10 months of maturity will put this wine in a sweet spot.
