Blankiet Estate Mythicus Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2012 Mythicus is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller cuvée of only 220 cases. It is close to perfection, for sure, with an inky purple color and a beautiful nose of smoldering embers intermixed with charcoal, blackberry, new saddle leather, crème de cassis, incense, and graphite. Full-bodied, with enormous extract and richness, but with a flawless integration of alcohol, acidity, tannin, and wood, this wine is still a baby, even for 2012, but promises to evolve for 25-30 years.
