Parker 90 Point Reviews for Miro Cellars

Wine Advocate: 90 Points for 2012 Miro Cellars Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

“This limited production (300 cases) 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve comes from a lofty elevation of 2,200 feet. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by lots of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit notes intermixed with hints of white chocolate, earth and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins and abundant character as well as craftsmanship, it should drink well for 10-15 years.”

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points for 2012 Miro Cellars Piccetti Vineyard Zinfandel

Dry Creek Valley

“This offers excellent refinement, with high-toned red-berry fruit and sarsaparilla that are on the edge of jammy—in a good way. Noticeable yet balanced acidity and generous tannins provide a solid structure.”

2014 International Wine Review

Miro Cellars 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Silverwood Vineyard Pine Mountain Cloverdale Peak ($30) 91
This is a fresh and lively fruit forward Cabernet sourced from Silverwood Vineyard at the top of Cloverdale’s Pine Mountain. It boasts red and blackberry fruit aromas with a touch of spice and smoke . It has good intensity of fruit on the palate with excellent acidity and soft round tannins on the finish. Enjoy through 2024.

Miro Cellars 2012 Cuvée Sasha
North Coast ($18) 90+
Cuvée Sasha is a blend of 68% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 12% Syrah. It is a delicious bistro-like wine with fresh red berry fruit and lively acidity. Aged 11 months in European oak, 18% new, it is nicely balanced with good acidity, round tannins and a savory finish. Enjoy over the next 3 to 5 years.

Miro Cellars 2012 Petite Sirah
Dry Creek Valley ($26) 89
This Petite Sirah is ripe and lush with lots of black fruit aromas and flavors from Dry Creek Valley grapes. It is full-bodied and concentrated on the palate with soft round tannins. A low pH wine that is flavorful but would be even better with more nuance and refinement.

Miro Cellars 2012 Zinfandel Reserve
Wolcott-Bevill Vineyard Dry Creek Valley ($28) 89
This Zinfandel Reserve offers delicious red and black spicy fruit flavors and is very ripe and lush on the palate. It is full-bodied and high in acidity with good tannic structure. An easy drinking Zin with persistent black fruit flavors and a touch of heat.
