Winery of the Month – MYTHIC

In the Southern Hemisphere lies a Viticultural Eden bathed by an ancient ridge, where pristine glacial waters filter down through nutrient rich earth. This unspoiled paradise is the chosen land for growing vines. It is here where MYTHIC wines are born. 300 days of sun, deep roots, and alluvial soil create the most ideal of conditions for these MYTHIC Argentine wines.

Bernardo Bossi Bonilla – winemaker extraordinaire. Bernie spent years honing his skills at Argentine powerhouses Catena, Tikal, and Casarena before embarking on his very own label, MYTHIC. No longer handcuffed by management and bean-counters, Bernardo is afforded the freedom to craft his wines exactly how he sees fit, quite a rare feat with the proliferation of factory wineries.

Mythic Mountain Red Blend 2015
90 Points! – Decanter Magazine
$9.99/750ml

Tasting notes:
Intense ruby red in the glass with aromas of spicy, jammy red fruit from the Malbec, rich black fruit & structure courtesy of the Cabernet, and a round, soft finish attributed to the Merlot… all lingers nicely in the mouth.

Latest Ratings (2014 vintage):
– 90 points, Decanter Magazine: Argentina’s Best Malbec Blends, July 2015
“Blackberry, violet, cassis and ripe plumb leap out of the glass. A refreshing style where oak plays a role but the fruit is pure with fresh and vibrant acidity.”

“…the medium-bodied palate has very fine, if grainy tannins as Cabernet does, though is juicy and supple. It
makes you salivate.”

Mythic Block Malbec 2012
93+ Points! – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
$29.99/750ml

Tasting notes:
Tell-tale inky Malbec hue with a nose of freshly picked violets and ripe berries seamlessly integrated with spicy chocolate notes. Intense and full-bodied wine with notable structure yielding gentle tannins.

Latest Ratings:
– 93+ points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, August 2015
“This wine is serious and transmits a harmonious minerality that is pungent, deep and focused. It is sharp and at the same time powerful and concentrated, ready to drink now or bury in your cellar for a few years.”

– 93 points, Tim Atkin, MW, March 2015 “This is the best MYTHIC wine: Aromatic and refined, with smooth tannins, red berry fruit, stylish oak and a mineral undertone.”
