The 2012 Mythicus is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller cuvée of only 220 cases. It is close to perfection, for sure, with an inky purple color and a beautiful nose of smoldering embers intermixed with charcoal, blackberry, new saddle leather, crème de cassis, incense and graphite. Full-bodied, with enormous extract and richness, but with a flawless integration of alcohol, acidity, tannin and wood, this wine is still a baby, even for a 2012, but promises to evolve for 25-30 years.

Bright ruby-red. Knockout Cabernet nose combines currant, licorice menthol and wild herbs; brooding but not overly dark. Utterly seamless and glossy on the palate yet at the same time sharply delineated, with outstanding floral lift to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. For all its early sex appeal and noble tannins, this wonderfully sappy, extremely long wine is very backward today and in need of extended aging. An addition to the range, the Mythicus is a new 100% Cabernet Sauvignon bottling that debuts in 2012. (ST) 96+
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mythicus comes across as quite closed today, with the structural elements dominating the wine's balance. Most of Blankiet's 2012s are open and expressive today, but the Mythicus is not. In this tasting, the Mythicus is dark, brooding and totally shut down, which is probably a good thing for the future.

Lots of blueberry, blackberry and black currants on the nose with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, firm and layered with lots of chocolate and berry character. Long and agile with form. Needs at least five years to soften. A pure Cabernet made from the best selection of grapes from the three key vineyards. This is first vintage of this wine.
