Mira Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville 2017
Fresh on the nose with touches of rosemary and sage alongside layers of fruit and a foundation of oak. Smooth yet structured with a full body and a classic fruit character in counterpoint with earthy qualities. A fascinating wine to enjoy now but also one that will reward you with a greater depth of character if held for several years.
96 Points - Somm Journal - "The nose is so opulent that there are great expectations for lushness of flavor and texture: Scents of violets, graphite, tilled soil, and toasted oak are almost indulgent. Brilliant, fleshy boysenberry and a coating of licorice initiate the bold flavors and determined grip. Violets and slate tannins run in tandem with black olive, soy sauce, sage, and black pepper. From the Chandon Vineyard, a site with abundant morning sun and good water retention, it aged for 18 months in (75% new) French oak —M.M."
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast, Editor's Choice - "This wine is herbal and earthy, driven by a note of pencil shavings on the nose. The palate shows intriguing complexity and undeniable power. Dark chocolate adds a lasting rich note alongside a hint of crushed rock. Editors’ Choice. —V.B."
92 Points - James Suckling - "This has a character of ripe blueberries and plums, fresh violets and coffee. Hints of pencil shavings and tobacco. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, creamy texture and bright acidity. Ripe yet succulent and fresh. Long finish with a touch of mint. Slightly fluid at the end. Try from 2022."
