Mira Jimmy D's Red Blend Napa Valley 2018
Warm spice aromas greet the nose with accents of vanilla and mocha, while on the palate the bold flavor of crushed dark cherries delivers a mouthwatering and persistent acidity.
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast - HIDDEN GEM - "Great balance, intricate layers of flavor and velvety tannins make this blend of mostly Syrah and Merlot fun to savor and also save for future drinking when it has developed more complexity. Very fine-grained tannins and good acidity give it the backbone to drink best from 2025–2035. A blend of 62% Syrah, 30% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. Hidden Gem. —J.G"

18 months, 100% French oak barrels (new)
Warm spice aromas greet the nose with accents of Tahitian vanilla and cacao nibs, while on the palate the bold flavor of crushed cherry delivers a mouthwatering and persistent acidity. The refinement and elegance of this vintage has us calling it the “luxury" Jimmy D's.
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.
Four-day cold maceration followed by 18 days of fermentation. Daily pumpovers during active fermentation at 88°F. 19 days total vat time followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. Aged for 18 months in 100% French oak barrels. New for this vintage is Merlot in the blend.
