2016 Mira Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Intense fresh aromatics of sweet and dried fruit are balanced by notes of black pepper and cigar box. On the palate the wine shows its bold structure and bracing acidity, a window into the tremendous potential for this wine to evolve as it ages.
An opulent, lavish style with almost decadent aromas: blackberry jam, Asian spices, plum sauce and mushrooms. Succulent raisins, chocolate and truffle.
This impressively structured wine, with just 3% Petit Verdot, is ample in a robut blackberry jam tone. Iron, tobacco, lavender and dried herb ride along the midpalate with ease. The black pepper on the finish is additionally on point.
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. The wine is non fined and non filtered.
