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.”

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.”

—Steve Heimoff (8/1/2013) — 92
