Mira Cabernet Sauvignon Schweizer Vineyard 2017
Hints of violet, cigar box, and eucalyptus meet rich blackberry and bay leaf aromas, segue into intense and complex layers of black currants and dried herbs on the palate. Smooth despite tremendous structure, the wine’s savory black fruit character underlies layers of iron and crushed rock.
95 Points - Wine Enthusiast - CELLAR SELECTION - "This bold, ripe-tasting and quite tannic wine needs plenty of time to show its best side. Deep black cherry and black-currant flavors are accented by smoky, cedary oak notes, and backed by a full body and firm texture. Subtle accents of cedar, cloves and iron add to its complexity. Best from 2027–2040. Cellar Selection. —J.G."
94 Points - The Wine Independent - "Deep garnet-purple in color, the single-varietal 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Schweizer Vineyard opens with evolving notes of prunes, tobacco leaf, and blackcurrant pastilles, plus suggestions of incense, new leather, and fallen leaves. The full-bodied palate is packed with maturing black fruits, supported by grainy tannins and lovely tension, finishing long with an herbal lift. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown"
93 Points - Robert Parker Wine Advocate - "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Schweizer Vineyard spent 30 months in 100% new French oak, resulting in plenty of cedary, cola-like accents to the ripe cherry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with that plush, velvety-silky Stags Leap District texture perfectly nailed. Sticklers might wish for a slightly longer finish and additional complexity, but this is a beauty."
90 Points - James Suckling - "Aromas of dark cherries, strawberries and white pepper follow through to a medium-bodied palate, full of juicy plums and cherries. Savory, bright and drinkable, though slightly light at the end.— JS"
