Never heard of the grape Cabernet Mitos? Don’t sweat it, no one has. A provocative crossing of Blaufränkisch and Tenturier du Cher (another rare grape that probably came from the Loire), this bizarre wine is dark as night reflecting its grape with dark flesh and dark juice. Thus, with a basically direct-pressed wine, we have something inky and brooding. Yet, the palate is vivid and almost tart (a green apple tartness?). It’s brightly spiced with red fruit and some sort of cranberry-cinnamon explosion with wild acids. Dried herbal notes, then dark chocolate, this is a delicious freak show of a wine. Pair with pheasant tongue and unicorn hooves.
