Have tasted all of these from bottle. Gonna be tough to keep this purchase under my credit limit. The Steltzner was a real wow-er.

Really interested in your thoughts. How was the Three twins and the regular Napa valley bottling? Primarily looking at those.

The Three Twins was my other favorite from
the lineup. Considerably more red-fruited than the rest of the bunch, but fairly open-knit and approachable. Napa had a bit more of the typical Mike Smith fruit profile with the characteristic mouthfeel, although I feel it’s not quite as approachable at this stage. 6mo-1year in bottle will do it wonders. Definite buy on both for me. Especially with the QPR.

Unless you were offered something different, I believe the case isn’t a sampler, it’s just 12 bottles of the Napa cab. The way it’s presented you would think it’s a mixed case though.

    Yeap, I also thought it was mixed initially until you look at the price...... A mixed cased at that price would truly be an amazing QPR!

    We don’t. I originally pointed out that it wasn’t a mixed case. Anyway, it’s weird that it’s offered that way. Why not just do free shipping on 12 bottles or more?

    If you buy from Rivers Marie, their offering a couple weeks ago looked very similar but the last item was a mixed case. So that may have contributed to the confusion.

      I’m pretty sure in the past for quivet (and possibly Myriad) the 12 pack was a mixed case.

      Steltzner and Twins are the standouts in 2017 hands down in my opinion. Tasting notes posted in Cellar Tracker.

        tasted some of these end of june. generally I am a 3T whore, but actually really loved the regular G3 and bought these to go with my elysians.
        generally i find the 3T to be that blue/black fruit I prefer but the G3 really had a little more weight than usual and tannin structure was sound.
        but yea the take home is you really can't mess this up unless you aren't buying any.

        Is there a big wait list for Myriad? I just signed up so I figured I'd miss the '17's, but am hopeful for the '18's when they come around.

        Assuming they're available I'll probably go for a 6-pack of Napa, Three Twins and Steltzner. Have not tried the Steltzner yet but have a '16.

        I signed up last year and received the wait list offer, the SVD cabs were already gone but there was some NV and one of the Syrah’s available.

        Another one crosses the $100 line (Three Twins). I bit this time, but I'm going to have to either limit myself to the Napa or find a replacement (probably the same for R-M Calistoga too) next time around. Sad times for an old wino. [cry.gif]

        Anyone pass on this? I get Georges III Vineyard and Dr. Crane Vineyard 'Elysian' every year--but for some reason not their base bottling. Should I get the '17 base or wait for the '18--which is supposed to be a near perfect vintage?

        2 each of the NV, Steltz, and Three Twins. Trying to keep my costs reasonable for other projects at home.

        @Josh, I purchased earlier for the GIII and Dr. Crane release as well. From my perspective, I didn't skip because I have last years offering and want to keep the vertical going. I also like vintage variation and while I expect the 18s will be across the board better, it does not mean the 17s will be bad. You might end up getting different nuanced flavors in 17 you might not experience in 18, so if funds allow, why not buy a little so you don't feel like you missed out later on.

        Tasted with Budman and the three twins is very very good. The napa and steltzner were great as well, but with limited space I only went with the 3 twins. Don't miss out!

        Three Twins has been my favorite of Mike's sub-$100 cabs - across all the wines he makes, not just Myriad - pretty much since the first vintage (2008). While I'm sad to see it nudging up against the $100 threshold, it's definitely worth the price.

        For those who have posted glowing impressions of the Napa Valley, Three Twins, and Steltzner, I'm wondering if you didn't find the Round Pond to be on the same level or if you didn't have an opportunity to sample it?

        Thanks,
        Andy

        Another one crosses the $100 line (Three Twins). I bit this time, but I'm going to have to either limit myself to the Napa or find a replacement (probably the same for R-M Calistoga too) next time around. Sad times for an old wino. [cry.gif]
        You're being ripped off! the Three Twins i see is $95. ;)
