Checking in as a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and then equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Mystique offers a fabulous St. Emilion-like bouquet of blackcurrants, black cherries, lead pencil shavings, spice-box and incense in a medium to full-bodied, seamless, polished and elegant profile. It's already hard to resist, yet its impeccable balance and fine tannin all lead me to believe it will have 10-12 years of longevity. In addition, it's a flat out sensational value that readers shouldn't miss!

This well-built blue and black fruited beauty has highlights of mint and green tea on the nose to introduce a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. While certainly a "big" blend there's a spring in its step on the finish of fresh ground coffee and sarsaparilla. Drink it up. - Andy

The 2010 Mystique is an estate-grown blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet. The nose opens with rich sweet fruit of blackberries, raspberries, and a hint of dark cherry. At first taste you are struck by the rich creamy texture that is accompanied by lush fruit accents. It finishes with an intriguing array of exotic spices. Smooth and elegant, this wine displays an amazing sense of balance from beginning to end. Scott Greer, winemaker

2009 Wine Advocate - 91 points - The 2009 Mystique had been bottled 2 weeks before I tasted it. It is a slightly different blend being made up of 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon with a similar elevage. It is a rounder, plumper offering with more expressive aromatics. Both wines are meant for current consumption and should continue to provide pleasure for another 5-6 years. - Jay Miller

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Advocate - 92 points - The 2008 Mystique is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc aged in second use oak for 20 months. Savory, spicy, and flavorful, this nicely balanced effort is an excellent value and a fine introduction to Sheridan Vineyards. - Jay Miller

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

2007 Wine Advocate - 92 points - The 2007 Mystique, a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in 25% new French oak for 24 months. Purple/black in color, it delivers a nose of balsam wood, mineral, lavender, spice box, and intense black cherry, and black currant fruit. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and structured on the palate, it has loads of fruit and spice, outstanding concentration, impeccable balance, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for several years and will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2022. It is an outstanding value. - Jay Miller

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

2006 Wine Advocate - 91 points - The 2006 Mystique is a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc aged for 26 months in seasoned French oak. Opaque purple/black colored, it offers up a brooding nose of damp earth, spice box, black cherry, and black currant. Layered on the palate, it is already revealing some complexity as well as plenty of depth and concentration. It will benefit from several years of additional cellaring and should provide pleasure through 2021. - Jay Miller
