Vineyard Notes
Schweizer Vineyard, one of the oldest in Napa Valley, has been producing grapes for premier wines for over 100 years and has been owned by the Schweizer family since 1956. This small 42 acre vineyard in the heart of Stags Leap District brings together some of the best soils and the perfect microclimate for the growing of Cabernet Sauvignon. The combination of excellent draining Perkins Gravelly Loam soil, the guarantee of great afternoon sun due to its position on the east side of the valley and the ideal hot days and cool nights afforded by its microclimate secure that Schweizer Vineyard is among the world’s top locations to grow Cabernet Sauvignon. Mira’s Schweizer Cabernet perfectly reflects the unique characteristics of Stags Leap and represents the first time the Schweizer family has ever permitted a winery to designate the Schweizer Vineyard on the label of its wine. We like to refer to it as the most famous vineyard you’ve never heard of, until now.
Vintage Notes
A very nice growing season filled with dry conditions and an extended sunny summer, 2013 delivered another excellent vintage. Optimal maturity arrived effortless but with a little higher acidity than normal. Nevertheless, the wines show great depth and personality.
Winemaker's Notes
10 day cold maceration followed by 7 days of fermentation. Daily pumpovers during active fermentation at 89°F. 50 days total vat time in small French oak vats followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. Aged for 24 months in 100% French oak barrels (100% new).
Food Pairing Notes
Rosemary Crusted Rib Roast of Beef, Point Reyes Blue Cheese Crostini w/ Figs, Porcini Mushroom Risotto
