New release from former Screaming Eagle winemaker. Limited.

97 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from an iconic vineyard in Rutherford, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon G3 is all varietal and spent 20 months in French oak. It’s always a darker, full-bodied wine and gives up lots of chocolate covered currants, tobacco, espresso, and herbal notes in a balanced, textured, seamless package. As with all these 2019s from Brilliant Mistake, it’s well worth seeking out."

96 Points Robert Parker: "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon g3 is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with exuberant blackcurrant cordial and blackberry pie notes, plus hints of wild blueberries and tar, with a waft of bouquet garni. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm and grainy texture and compelling savory nuances, finishing long and minerally."

For Maayan Koschitzky making wine was a fine idea at the time, but now it's just a Brilliant Mistake. Now, he didn't stumble into this brilliance, he spent a decade honing his skills in his native Israel before coming to the states to work as the winemaker for Screaming Eagle. A decade later, as Director of Winemaking for Atelier Melka he pushes the buttons on several projects. Brilliant Mistake is 100% Cabernet and aged for 21 months in 65% new oak. Produced in tiny quantities (300 cases) Jeb Dunnuck raves that this wine "reveals pretty, nuanced notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, spice box, and flowers." A wine that will last a couple of decades, don't miss out on its beauty, purity and expressiveness.
