92 Points for 2011 Miro Cellars Petite Sirah

92 Points for 2011 Petite Sirah

A great Petite Sirah that preserves the variety’s rich power, yet reins it in toward elegance. It’s enormously concentrated in ripe blueberry and cherry pie fruit, spiced with black pepper, and wrapped into thick but soft tannins. There’s a ripeness to the finish that makes it succulent, but it’s dry in style. Compelling and delicious, it drinks beautifully now

92 Points for Miro Cellars 2011 Zinfandel

92 Points for 2011 Zinfandel

“Miro is building an impressive track record for Zinfandel, putting to shame many others that cost far more. This ’11 is as good as anything they’ve done, and defines Dry Creek Valley with its ripe, briary berry, tobacco, cocoa and spice flavors. Smooth in tannins and bright with acidity, it’s beautiful to drink now with beef in almost any form.”
