Mira Merlot Hyde Vineyard 2015
A nose characterized by its terroir: gravel, rocks, earth, dirt that lead to flavors of dark chocolate, tobacco and fruit. The finish is characterized by its medium structure, echoes of berries and semblances of charred meat. A very youthful wine that promises years of aging.
96 Points - Sunset International Wine Competition - "Oaky black fruit and fig. Lush"
92 Points - Wine Spectator - "Refined and focused, with a minerally saline hint to the dried red berry and cherry flavors that are full of ripe tannins and acidity. Ends with savory and black olive notes on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 330 cases made. — KM"
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast - "From the great Carneros site is this substantially concentrated and powerful wine, given extended time in bottle. Bright red fruit, oak, cedar and dried herb dot a landscape of enduring structure and earthiness, with black pepper and clove accents on the finish. —V.B."
90 Points - James Suckling - "A full-bodied merlot with aromas of black fruit, tar, tobacco leaves, cedar and baking spices. Firm tannins and chewy texture. Plenty of wood and rich bramble notes. Drink or hold."
