Miro Tcholakov must be a magician. That, or just a really talented winemaker. Either way, we’ll keep on featuring wines from his Miro Cellars winery.
Today’s Miro Cellars 2011 Silverwood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is an ultra QPR (Quality to Price Ratio) wine that delivers an incredible drinking experience - for a relatively low purchase price. Such wines are increasingly rare.
If you love rich, juicy, balanced Cabernet Sauvignon, we know that you will love today’s Miro Cellars masterpiece!
A nearly opaque, impossibly dark plum at its heart, with just an ever so slightly lighter ruby at the fringe.
Lovely on the nose, with the dark fruit notes of blackberry and plum supported by fresh sandalwood, aged cigar box, dark chocolate, star anise, and just a touch of spicy black pepper.
Rich and wonderfully well balanced, with just about the perfect level of complexity between fruit and spice. Plenty of concentrated, young black fruit, highlighted by plum, black currant, and blackberry, are rounded out by notes of berry bramble, cherry tobacco, espresso bean, clove, black peppercorn, and a touch of pomegranate black tea.
A soft, elegant, and absolutely drinkable wine, with the super fine tannins and plush dark fruit slowly trailing away and slightly drying the edges of the palate. After the fruit fades, you are left with hints of terroir and spice on the tongue.
A seared veal chop, served with fingerling potatoes, Portobello mushrooms, and roasted peppers.
