The wine is bright and lively with concentrated aromas. The predominant aromas are of dark cherry, blueberry and plums with classic raisin accent notes. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid, with medium body and very soft and elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish. Zinfandels, when balanced, are very versatile food wines with a broad range of exciting food pairings. This wine is delicious now, but with some patience and proper aging in 2-5 years it will be even better. Cheers!
92 Point Review - Wine Enthusiast (Previous Vintage) Miro is building an impressive track record for Zinfandel, putting to shame many others that cost far more. This ’11 is as good as anything they’ve done, and defines Dry Creek Valley with its ripe, briary berry, tobacco, cocoa and spice flavors. Smooth in tannins and bright with acidity, it’s beautiful to drink now with beef in almost any form.
