Re: What Mike Smith wine are you drinking tonight?

Two Myriad wines: 18 McGah & 12 Sugarloaf Mountain Whole Cluster.

I like it, a bit spicy on the finish for Cabernet. Pinch of Syrah there maybe? Nice deep nose, taste kind of all over the place but not unpleasant. It’s crazy young but I can see this being quite nice in 3-5 years.
