Winemaker's Notes:

Blackberry, anise and mineral aromas with suggestions of mulberry and briary spice against a toasted oak background; big on the palate, rich and broad with velvety fruit, supple tannin and a clean finish. Not simply a "fruit bomb" like many California Zins, this wine shows the firmness and freshness which are hallmarks of high-elevation fruit.
My Notes:

About Miraflores:

Each vineyard is cultivated to infuse its natural characteristics into every bottle. The commitment to excellence continues in the winemaking artistry for each small-lot production. Miraflores Winery strives to emulate the old world tradition of crafting memorable wines, while also being attentive to the creation of gracious surroundings.
