    November 25, 2020 - Decanted for an hour or so.

    Ripe black cherries, chocolate chunk, cassis, floral qualities, and some spice. Pleasant finish that is moderate in length. Has that Mike Smith touch but is not as high octane as the Myriad GIII or the Empyrean, which has more structure by comparison.

    This wine seems to be more crowd pleasing for the masses and has a bit more elegance. If you have both wines, bring the 12c to a party and save the Myriad for more intimate settings.

    October 7, 2020 - This is flat out delicious, made in the smooth easy drinking Mike Smith style.
    GIII fruit, loads of chocolate covered dark cherries, cassis, and other goodies...tannins are silky with good mid palate depth. I don't know how long this will age, but it's easy to drink.
