TNs: 2016 Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon featuring two new vineyards

#1 Post by Brian Tuite » June 2nd, 2018, 8:10 pm

Mike gave me a couple bottles the other day hoping to get some feedback. These wines are releasing in the upcoming Myriad portfolio offering. I opened them Thursday with Jorge, Shawnda and Leenda over dinner and tonight I revisited them with some air. Hope the notes are helpful. [cheers.gif]

  • 2016 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Round Pond Vineyard - USA, California, Napa Valley, Rutherford (6/2/2018)

    Opened on a Thursday, notes from Saturday evening. Dark ruby color. Tobacco leaf, cedar, dark chocolate covered cherries greet the nose. More cedar, creme de cassis, mocha and toasty oak. Rich red and black fruit from a persistent core. Fine ripe tannins finish it off. A restrained version of Mike Smith Cab wth a more traditional red fruited profile with lots of cedar notes at a price point that’s easier on the pocketbook.

  • 2016 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Steltzner Vineyard - USA, California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District (6/2/2018)

    A week after bottling, opened on a Thursday, notes from Saturday evening. Dark black to the core with dark ruby rim. Concentrated aromas of blackberry and anise. Rich extracted blackberry, cherry and black currant. Dense and layered with wonderful purity and depth. Fruit pulls right through the finish framed by firm tannins and cocoa.

    Satisfies immediately yet the structure assures a long happy shelf life. Another thoroughbred in the Myriad stable. Exceptional.

    Image
  • 2016 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley - USA, California, Napa Valley (6/2/2018)

    Deep dark red with purple tinges really opaque. Ripe purple berries abouund on the nose with some earthiness thrown in. Picking up rich Calistoga fruit up front, not sure what the vineyard blend is but Kenefick Ranch and GIII come to mind here. I’m probably wrong but the flavors remind me of those vineyards. Very rich ripe purple core, teeth staining and chewy. A big mouthful of Cabernet goodness and another solid Napa Blend in 2016.

Wow!

Great notes!

If I could pick any winery to barrel taste in, his would be the one.

So is that the old Steltzner vineyard next to Stag's Leap winery that was sold a few years ago? If so, it's a great source of fruit - Steltzner was always good wine.

In your bottom pic, with my phone screen resolution, the artwork appears to depict a law enforcement officer riding a rearing llama unicorn - over on the far right of the picture.

Those wines sound fantastic, I look forward to the future!

Actually it’s an original Piggins. To-Kalon I-Block Old Vine Sauvignon Blanc

With a name like Myriad, you need a lot of different SVDs.

Thank you Brian. This is great and exciting information.

I have to confess, this was my favorite part:
at a price point that’s easier on the pocketbook.

+1. One of my good friends has been friends with Dick Steltzner for many years. He bought a 15L of his Cab several years ago to open for a milestone birthday. I think the vintage was 1997, and he opened the bottle last July. It took half an hour to uncork the bottle, and someone had to make a wooden cradle to help pour the wine out, but it was outstanding.

Thanks,
Ed

Holy crap!

BTW, the 1997 Merlot was a great bottle for the price.

The only Steltzner I’ve had previously was an ‘82 about 3 years ago. My note was “Big acid, fruit fading.”

What interests me is WHICH Round Pond Vineyard he is using.

The formal Round Pond Vineyard sits directly across from F Block of GIII and shares similar soils to that block of GIII. I am curious if Round Pond is making available a vineyard they purchased last year called "M Bar." If so, that would be very interesting and I would get in line for that fruit, myself. Some of you may remember Mondavi made an M-Bar Reserve wine for several years.

Either way, can't really go wrong.

Four cabs? Interesting, there are three more cabernets listed in my email, making it seven. This will be interesting.

A list is a very small group of long standing buyers, basically if you dont know what it is then your not on it and not likely to be on it anytime soon. The A list get guaranteed allocations, im not sure of the exact criteria but think like 10 years + of regular buying and thats the sort of customer the A list os aimed at. Tier one is the first wave for normal list members who have purchased previously, you get an allocation but its not guaranteed, if you snooze you loose

I love these wines but I am the only one who feels that there are just to many bottlings in a year ? If you take just 2 of each then your getting close to three cases of cab

They have 18 cab bottlings a year? That must be an exclusive list I’m not a member of. Disappointing to learn.

Rarely post here, but I have never heard of the A-list. I've been a buyer since the 2010 release and noticed that the last Dr. Crane Elysian release I was not able to get the one bottle I always take. That was only 3hrs after the release. I suspected something was up. Now I know. Just sucks because although I don't buy a large quantity, I still buy at least one bottle of each. Todd

Yes, the Dr. Crane allocation was frustrating, but I think what happened is that they didn't have a limit (or a high limit) on bottles once the allocation opened. So people took a lot right when the site opened, and it was corrected by Myriad but only after the majority of the offering had already sold. I think this has been fixed from what I've been told for future releases.

As a long time buyer of Myriad cabs (back to the release of the ‘08s) and a regular supporter of several other Mike Smith brands, who did not make the ‘A-list’, I hope that the creation of such a list doesn’t result in lack of availability for other regular customers. I know Mike and Leah are good folks, so I’m sure they’ve taken steps to keep that from happening, but I always worry a little when a special group of customers gets prioritized.

I think they will, Andrew---worst-case, be sure to reach out personally. They are good, good people, not just good winemaking people.

Tiered mailing lists are something I forgot to remark on in parts of my 17-day trip, but there is more than one winery that is heading in that direction.

Got to taste a couple of these. I also have to cheerlead for the fantastic job Mike did with the Halcon Syrah in 2016.

From about 6 days ago:

2016 Myriad Napa Cab

Kenefick, Bourne, Scarlett (next to Caymus) and Georges III vineyards. 15.1%, a bit of Petit Verdot from Scarlett. This is more about cocoa, plum and light boysenberry. It's a little unfinished now, but length and power here with sour cherry and plum, truffle notes a little later.

2016 Myriad Round Pond Cab

They are the only ones to get fruit out of here besides Round Pond itself. Across the street from Georges III. Slightly earthy bouquet with sweet plum and cocoa as well. Le gout is super-round, umami--and delectable. Soft as it gets but absolutely no heavy or surmaturite at all, with shiny blue and black fruit. Had to mark down a bottle of this.


Before Mike joined us, Leah told us a lovely story, how he had been working super-hard with the Stelzner and then he came into the house earlier that week and was glowing, with a big smile on his face. "You nailed it, didn't you", she said. Yup.

DO ACT QUICKLY. The Quivet stuff on the last release sold out in a day.

Just tasted through most of his 17s. Also tasted the wines going on sale for 16, shortly.

My takeaway? There is only 100cs of Stelzner. I recommend you max that out.

I'm in for a case of cab and a case of semillon.
Tasted with Mike and Leah yesterday. Had 4 of the 2016 cabs. Purchase was a no-brainer!

I am wondering your thoughts on the 4 2016 cabs you tasted, I was out there in May and tasted through some of their lineup, but was only able to taste the 2016 Myriad Cab, and the 2016 Dr. Crane Elysian, both of which were extremely good (no detailed notes), despite being just bottled. I ordered a mixed case of the cab while I was there (I think it had 3 bottles of NV, and 1 ea/ of the single vineyard offerings).

2016 is looking like another great vintage for Napa and Sonoma. Perhaps a combination of the fruit depth/concentration of 2015, and some of the structure of 2013.

Ha ! I misread the thread . Read/thought Aug 1 for previous buyers, not the 7th.
