Deep garnet-red in color with purple edges. The nose is intense with ripe fruit and a mineral, balsamic background (licorice). The mouth blooms aromas of damp soil and sweet spices (cocoa, nutmeg) that develops into an elegant ripeness with a very silky and balanced texture. The finish is long and voluminous. Pairs well with very structured game dishes, such as grilled deer loin with cranberry sauce and semi-hard cheeses, especially Manchego and Zamorano.
Blend: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Garnacha Tintorera, 10% Monastrell
"The 2006 Mira is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Garnacha Tintorera, and 10% Monastrell aged for 20 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays a reticent nose of toasty oak, blackberry, and black currant. On the palate layers of succulent fruit emerge accented by lots of spice, licorice, and mineral notes. "
The Wine Advocate
Big & Bold
This is a inky purple colored wine. It is big and bold. It has spice and licorice and black currant on the palate. You can also taste the minerals as they linger. Great everyday wine.
Very nice med bodied, nice finish served with turkey burgers. A soft zinfindel feel.
Smooth & Supple
I am not a big fan of Italian wines. However the price/rating on this one caused me to purchas 9 bottles. An excellent value. Pleasant nose, long finish, minor tannins. Great every day wine, or with pasta. Medium bodied.
