Mira Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2017

First impressions of wet crushed gravel and delicate spice are followed closely by an onrush of vibrant black fruits. Opulent and extroverted, the wine’s boldness and backbone of structure are strong enough to carry the essence of 100% new French oak yet still offer a touch of dust that hints at its proximity to Rutherford.

92 Points - James Suckling - "This red has ripe dark and blue-fruit character, together with baking spices, cigar box and a touch of leafiness. Dried fruit from the warmth of the vintage. Full and intense with layers of polished tannins, deep fruit and a firm texture. Rather chewy. Some dried fruit at the end. Big style."

Vintage Notes
2017 is a year in which Nature kept us on our toes through much of the growing season. Winter brought us a much-needed abundance of rain that refreshed our groundwater supplies. The mild spring felt like a continuation of winter which culminated in a rare June hailstorm. The winter rains were brought to balance with very warm summer temperatures leading to the wildfires at the end of harvest. Fortunately for Mira, none of our vineyards were impacted and we had wrapped up harvest before the fires, saving us from any effect on wine quality.
Winemaker's Notes
Eight day cold maceration followed by 17 days of fermentation. Daily pumpovers during active fermentation at 91°F. 21 days total skin contact time followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Bottled non fined and non filtered.
