Review: 2020 True Myth Cabernet Sauvignon

Review: 2020 True Myth Cabernet Sauvignon

Operating out of the Edna Valley in the Paso Robles region of California, True Myth and its various affiliated labels have been offering up sensibly priced Chardonnays and red blends since the early 1970s. But for now, we’re pouring a glass of its Cabernet for consideration.

A blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon, 10% syrah, 5% petite sirah, this falls neatly into form with other cabs emanating from Paso Robles, delivering an agenda that is heavy on dark red fruit before receding and finding even footing with other elements to lessen the jammy effect. Big on dark cherry, strawberry, and raspberry notes at first, it is eventually complemented by notes of mocha, vanilla, and mild oak on the palate. The finish is lingering but fails to develop beyond the palate other than to bump up notes of oak and dark chocolate. A solid, serviceable everyday cab for those wishing to be mindful of their purchases without necessarily sacrificing quality.
