The Miro 2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Silverwood Vineyard, located almost at the top of Cloverdale's Pine Mountain - the newest appellation in Sonoma County. Perched at 2,200 feet elevation above the meandering Russian River Valley, this vineyard site is as rugged as it gets - extreme viticulture, if you will! The allure of mountain grapes is the extended sunshine and more intense solar radiation, and this Cabernet Sauvignon certainly benefits from these conditions. On the nose, ample aromas of wild blue and blackberries are layered over hints of minerality, cinnamon, dark chocolate and dusty cocoa. The mouth feel is of a big wine with significant, but soft, tannins, that finishes long and nicely balanced.
