      Winemaker Notes

      Subtle nose with saffron and mineral notes. Vivid attack on citrus zest flavors; we have an explosive full-bodied wine with floral aromas such as acacia and vine flower. 2003 is the year of dryness in France. 2003 is a great vintage, full of strength with lots of residual sugars which will become more and more candied throughout the age.

      Blend: 88% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon, 4% Muscadelle

      Wine Spectator
      Incredible nose of honey, apple pie, toffee and spices. Intense. Layers of fruit. Full-bodied, thick and very sweet. Pure honey. Better than the 2001. Spread over buttered toast ... just joking. Best ever from here.

      Chateau de Myrat, , France - Bordeaux
      Chateau de Myrat
      Chateau de Myra has a history that begins in the late 1700's, many transfers and a lack of documentation makes it difficult to monitor developments. However, it is reasonably clear that it is the family Dumirat who made the chateau its name in the early 1800's.

      The name was Chateau Mirat which was later revised to Chateau de Mirat. During the 1855 classification the castle was owned by the family Molle, which at that time got Chateau de Mirat classified in Les seconds Crus.

      When Chateau de Myrat got the current spelling is unclear but it must have been after the classification 1855. Despite the extensive restoration of the vineyard, which was completed 1945, Max de Pontac was not pleased with the results, and 1976 he took the courageous decision to pull all the vines at Chateau de Myra. This was a shocking decision that has never before been implemented among the classified castles in Sauternes.

      The sons Jacques and Xavier became clear with the new plantings 1988, and today Chateau de Myrat withdrawn its role among the classified castles in Sauternes.

      Napa Valley

      Cabernet Sauvignon

      View all wine

      The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
