Critical Acclaim

RP98 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2015

"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." (98 pts.)

VN95+ Vinous Nov 2013

"Blankiet’s 2012 Blankiet Estate Mythicus Paradise Hills Vineyard is a new wine that may become a permanent addition to the range. The debut vintage is certainly promising. Black fruit, cassis and grilled herbs lead to tobacco, smoke, incense and orange peel notes that add an exotic, intriguing dimension. The 2012 is rich and sensual yet also has plenty of underlying structure and pure explosiveness. Graphite, game and scorched earth all add complexity as this dark, brooding Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its personality and pedigree. I expect the Mythicus will require patience, but readers who can find the 2012 should not hesitate, as it is magnificent." (95–97+ pts.)

VN96 Vinous Oct 2015

"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." (96 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
