Nose

Layers of seductive red fruit aromas interwoven with hints of minerality attract the nose.

Palate

The initial contact with the palate hints at a brightness that is sure to allow the wine to gain complexity over many years while the middle is loaded with red fruit, supple tannin, and just a hint of French oak. The finale is grandiose with a sexy perfume filled return and a long finish that begs for another taste. This wine is non-fined and non-filtered. Expect some sediment from our pure approach to winemaking. This wine can be cellared for years to come.

Winemaking

Long before Mira was born, Gustavo Gonzalez knew that when he had the opportunity to make a definitive Napa Cabernet Sauvignon under his own label, he wanted the fruit to come from the Schweizer Vineyard. One of the oldest vineyards in the Napa Valley, Schweizer has been producing grapes for premier wines for over 100 years and has been owned by the Schweizer family since 1956. Their stewardship of the land and appreciation for the unique qualities of the Stags Leap terroir make them ideal partners in Mira’s pursuit of the perfect single vineyard, single varietal wine. From our specially designed French oak fermentation tanks – the first of their kind in the United States – to our extensive barrel program, including barrels designed according to the Golden Ratio, we invest every resource and care available to us into the production of our Schweizer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, yielding a wine that is a true Napa Valley masterpiece.
