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.

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"

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
Grown on the Yountville bench, bordering the Oakville AVA on the west side of the valley, this vineyard is in an ideal location to achieve the perfect combination of ripeness in Cabernet Sauvignon. This classic Napa Valley Cabernet is coaxed from the grapes through hand harvesting and gentle processing in the winery. The fermentation period is characterized by hot peak temperatures in the must and a thorough extraction campaign to get every last drop of flavor. 38 days total tank time is followed by 18 months in French oak barrels, 75% new. The wine is non fined and non filtered
