Oh, Miro, Miro, HOW are you capable of profoundness like this? Your wines should come with instructions on how to stop drinking them! This is the kind of Pinot that gets the knees weak and one must sit down, if standing, to process and appreciate its depth. As we said before, anything Miro is exceptional and we all know that by now, but his Reserves are out of this world.
Gorgeous bright ruby with alluring reflections of deeper coral accents on the pale rim, with instant visual appeal. Fresh and elegant on the perfume, with tons of depth to the crushed raspberries and pomegranate fruit. Bing cherries, a basket of wild berries, red plum and dusty earth with herbs and flowers are just some of what adds on once sipped. Medium to full-bodied, strikingly balanced with integrated acidity and irresistible charm on the haunting finish. This Pinot is ideally built for a fillet of wild salmon with a balsamic glaze and fresh asparagus, lightly charred.
Honestly, the well-deserved Gold Medal barely begins to do it justice. Just released, this is your golden opportunity to get as much as you can before it joins the growing historic track record of many a sold-out Miro. This is a steal at $29 dear Operatives, it’s ABSURDLY affordable for the level of purity, intensity and the sheer hedonism this stunning Pinot Noir offers. Just a few cases remained by the time we secured our allocation sadly, so ACT FAST!
Here’s what the wine press has to say:
