Zinfandel •Wolcott-Bevill and Göpfrich
California: Sonoma County: Dry Creek Valley
Agent KGB (Miro Tcholakov) is back! This time around with his latest Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, his stunning 2013 vintage. Like most wines from Miro, this Zin is a screaming value. It is also a fantastic BBQ companion.
Today marks the 29th time that we’ve featured a wine from Miro Cellars. Why has this winery become a Wine Spies staple? Because Miro’s wines have become some of your favorites, too! Operatives love Miro’s wines and so whenever Agent Red gets a chance to bring you Miro’s newest offerings, he goes for it.
Today’s Miro Cellars 2013 Zinfandel is a charming, flavor packed Zin that is great on opening, but fantastic with just a little time in the decanter. This young wine will be great for the next few years, so be sure to pick up enough of this approachable, quaffable wine to last you through the summer - and beyond.
Very dark, translucent garnet.
Bold and juicy, with spice infused blackberry, plum and black cherry aplenty. Underneath, more subtle notes of cedar, cherry cordial, blueberry jam and black pepper provide a lovely backbone.
Juicy and rich, with tart cherry, baker’s chocolate, cassis, blackberry candy, sweetwood and a hint of intriguing tomato vine.
Starts bright, ends juicy and mouthwatering with velvety tannin.
This is a classic BBQ Zin, folks! Enjoy with with nearly anything grilled - and slathered in sauce.
