Myriad Cabernet

Myriad Cabernet Wine Details
Price: $65.00 per bottle

Description: Our flagship wine is both powerful and seductive. This gutsy red achieves all three components that make up a great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentration, harmony and balance. The nose & palate reveal intense layers of crushed blackberry, boysenberry, exotic cocoa powder, spice cake and an undeniable minerality. Velvety mountain tannins & a lush texture give way to a finish that floats on the palate with great persistence. While this wine will drink nicely in its youth, it will also reward those with enough patience to age it for 10 years.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
