Mira Petit Verdot Rutherford District 2017

Hints of sage and the minerality of pencil shavings meet rich blackberry and clove aromas, segueing into intense and complex layers of black currant, dried herbs, and chocolate flavors in the well-structured palate. The appellation’s characteristic ‘dusty’ mouthfeel leads to a bright and lengthy finish.;

Vineyard Notes
The McGah Family’s Alsace Vineyard is widely regarded as one of the premier sources of Napa Valley grapes. Located in the Rutherford AVA, the soils from this upper bench are gravelly loam soils, both red and brown. The vineyard site provides an excellent combination of drainage and heat, coupled with cool evenings, all working together to result in uniform ripening and acidic balance. The site is just north of Oakville and borders the Silverado Trail. At the behest of Gonzalez, a small portion of this prized vineyard was replanted to Petit Verdot, the fruit that now produces our extremely limited Collectors Series 2012 Petit Verdot.
Winemaker's Notes
Four day cold maceration followed by 11 days of fermentation. Daily pumpovers during active fermentation at 88°F. 24 days total vat time followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. Aged for 18 months in 100% French oak barrels (50% new).
Food Pairing Notes
Beef Short Ribs, Sautéed Wood Ear Mushrooms w/ garlic and herbs, Grana Padano
