Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) This full-bodied yet smooth Merlot displays supple tannins with flavors of red cherries that evolve into decadent levels of cocoa and espresso and a smooth finish. This wine is reminiscent of that chocolate cherry cupcake.

Winemaker's Notes

Taste Profile: Our Mirassou California Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep rich blackberry and black currant flavors. These primary flavors are complimented by secondary flavors of vanilla and hints of toasted oak and brown spice. This wine is full bodied with a soft finish of moderate length. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years. Finished Wine: Balancing intense flavors of blackberry and black currant with hints of vanilla and brown spice, Mirassou Cabernet Sauvignon is a unique expression of California's most celebrated growing regions.

    (From 2006 Vintage) Luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. These primary flavors are augmented with secondary flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and spices including clove and nutmeg. The addition of complementary varietals contributes to a velvety mouth feel and lingering, smooth finish. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years. October 2009
