LIBRARY - Mira Cabernet Sauvignon Schweizer Vineyard 2016
A level of refinement on the nose that defies easy description, evoking the best of the “Grand Cru” tradition. Smooth despite tremendous structure, on the palate the wine’s essential fruit character underlies layers of earthy, forest floor notes. Already extremely complex, this wine is destined for a profound journey in the cellar.
97 Points - Sunset International Wine Competition - "Bordeaux, leading with cassis, plum, leather, fresh acidity, full-bodied, excellent finish."
95 Points - Wine Enthusiast - "This wine spent extra time in bottle after 30 months in all new French oak. The grapes were grown in volcanic soils on the eastern side of the appellation. Inviting flavors of earth and herb carry the rich and expansive palate, with lasting accents of iron, crushed rock, currant and violet lending depth. Best from 2026–2036. Cellar Selection. —V.B."
92 Points - James Suckling - "A character of ripe blueberries and blackberries, sweet vanilla, eucalyptus and pine wood. Full-bodied with viscous tannins, deep, savory fruit and warming mouthfeel. Slightly fluid at the end but holds together. Long finish with hints of minerality. Try from 2022."
91 Points - Wine Spectator - "A dark, winey style, with a core of steeped currant and blackberry fruit, plus warm earth and dark tobacco accents. The slightly taut finish is lined with singed cedar. For fans of the old-school style. Best from 2023 through 2032. —J.M."
91 Points - Jeb Dunnuk - "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Schweizer Vineyard showed beautifully, with a fresher yet still rich and powerful style that's very much in the profile of the vintage. Currants, smoked tobacco, spicy wood, and chocolate notes all define the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a juicy spine of acidity and ripe tannins. This complex, nuanced, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking well today yet has another 10-15 years of longevity."
