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. "
