In 2000, the Castano family acquired and re-organized some old vineyards located at the lowest part of Sierra Salinas, between the provinces of Murcia and Alicante and decided to have a winery built there. The winery is a state of the art, gravity flow facility on the mountains' foothills at about 650 meters above sea level.
A dense, dark red and intense bouquet of dark fruits with hints of black berries and a smoky tinge. The wine is full bodied with concentrated fruit flavors that border on juicy sweetness yet with enough tannin and acidity to balance. Enjoy with very full flavored dishes, especially those cooked over a fire.
From 28 year old vineyards - Monastrell, Garnacha Tintorera & Cabernet Sauvignon.
"The 2005 Mira is 65% Monastrell, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Garnacha Tintorera aged in 60-70% new French oak. Deep crimson-colored, the wine has an excellent bouquet of pain grille, mineral/creosote, black cherry, and blueberry. This leads to a smooth-textured, focused, elegant effort with ample spicy fruit, very good depth and breadth, and a long, pure finish. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 6-8 years. "
The Wine Advocate
I'm not sure if I'd purchase this for $50, but at $17.99, it's surely one of the best bargains out there today. Dense, luscious fruit with old world complexity. Buy all you can before it's all gone.
I enjoy drinking this wine. This wine is great with cheese and crackers. I will recommend this wine to everyone .
This was my first purchase from wine.com. I bought several bottles but this was the least expensive so I bought. I am glad I did. It is very balanced in that it is not too dry and not too heavy but not really light either. I like it because you could drink it anytime with anything or nothing.
By far the best sub-$20 I have had in a long while. Buy multiple bottles while you can.
Nice wine, surprisingly concentrated and not overly tannic. Lacks some complexity, but delicious with flavors ripe black cherry and coffee. Full bodied with a rich mouth feel and a med-long smooth finish that left the palate craving more.
good, but not distinctive
Bought 2 cases based on Parker's review and user reviews. Possibly the worst Spanish red that I have ever tasted. Would never buy again. No wonder it is 65% discounted...
