2015 Miro Cellars Zinfandel, Gaddis Vineyard: The wine is bright and lively, with concentrated aromas of dark cherry, blueberry and plums and a touch of typical Zin raisin. There are secondary vineyard-specific fragrances of wild berries, sage and wild herbs. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid, with medium body and very soft and elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish. There is a pronounced acidity and minerality from this cool-climate and low-yield vineyard. Well-balanced Zin inspires a broad range of food pairings. It will satisfy your palate with many of your favorite dishes from fig spiced duck confit salad to barbecued tri-tip. The wine is delicious now; with some patience and proper aging, in 2-5 years it will be even better.
2015 Miro Cellars Cuvée Sasha: Some wines just make sense. This vintage of our Cuvée Sasha is a field blend of Old Vines grown in teh vineyards of California’s North Coast since the days before Prohibition. Each variety brings its own signature to this dark and zesty wine full of aromas of ripe black cherries, blackberries and plums. The wine is dense and complex, with layers of richness and velvety tannins. You will savor the long juicy finish until it begs another sip.
