Myriad Cellars Three Twins Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Napa Valley, California


It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, dried figs, tobacco, raisins, cedar, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, chocolates, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, espresso, vanilla, spices, light earth, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This 9 year old, from the great 2013 vintage, is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 3 hours in the decanter.

Another wonderful wine from the hands of Mike Smith. Rich, elegant, fruit forward and extracted.

Getting to be at its peak, but not there yet, although very enjoyable at this point. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Robert Parker 93 points.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

Great by itself as a sipping wine, and will also pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from a Single Vineyard. A tiny production of only 100 cases made.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$135.
