James Suckling Acclaims Mira Wines

November 1, 2021

We are excited to share some great reviews by renowned journalist and wine critic, James Suckling. James is a believer that today’s wine drinker should see with their own eyes the place, the people, and the process beyond just the scores and the notes. Experience for yourself.

92 PointsCabernet Sauvignon Schweizer Vineyard Stag’s Leap District 2016

A character of ripe blueberries and blackberries, sweet vanilla, eucalyptus and pine wood. Full-bodied with viscous tannins, deep, savory fruit and warming mouthfeel. Slightly fluid at the end but holds together. Long finish with hints of minerality. Try from 2022.

92 PointsCabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2017

This red has ripe dark and blue-fruit character, together with baking spices, cigar box and a touch of leafiness. Dried fruit from the warmth of the vintage. Full and intense with layers of polished tannins, deep fruit and a firm texture. Rather chewy. Some dried fruit at the end. Big style.

92 PointsCabernet Sauvignon Yountville 2017

This has a character of ripe blueberries and plums, fresh violets and coffee. Hints of pencil shavings and tobacco. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, creamy texture and bright acidity. Ripe yet succulent and fresh. Long finish with a touch of mint. Slightly fluid at the end. Try from 2022.

91 PointsSyrah Hyde Vineyard 2016

Aromas of plums, blueberries, dried herbs and smoked meat, as well as some balsamic and cigar box. It’s medium-bodied with sleek tannins. Soft structure with a smoky, savory and flavorful finish. Drink now.

90 PointsMerlot Hyde Vineyard 2015

A full-bodied merlot with aromas of black fruit, tar, tobacco leaves, cedar and baking spices. Firm tannins and chewy texture. Plenty of wood and rich bramble notes. Drink or hold.
