Love can be complicated…but your wine should not be!
Let us help you plan the perfect pairing or simply a pouring to complement you and your loved one’s celebration together! Fall in love this February with these three selections from Mira Winery:
Mira Chardonnay 2014 ($30)
Starting with a cheese plate or just a glass to sip on over conversation before a meal? Look no further than the subtle and reserved notes of our Chardonnay. Concentrated and full-bodied with mango and tropical flavors and a hazelnut, creamy, savory finish.
Don’t just take our word for it!
91 points, RobertParker.com: “Made from the Robert Yong clone of Chardonnay, Mira’s 2014 Chardonnay has a light gold color and beautiful notes of delicate white peach, honeysuckle and fruit with some crushed rock minerality in the background. Fresh, lively and medium to full-bodied, but displaying lots of complexity and class, this is a somewhat understated but intense style of wine that reflects terrific winemaking. Moreover, it is a great value. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.”

Initial traces of familiar berries and spices playfully reveal themselves as black cherry, raspberry, pomegranate and earth as the wine begins to unwind. Definition from the acidity ensures a long and sublime finish.
Recommended pairing? Our Winemaker Gustavo Gonzalez recommends an herb roasted pork
tenderloin, and earthy side dishes such as roasted mushrooms. “The wonderful thing about Pinot Noir is that it is truly a perfectly suited wine to pair with a wide variety of food because of its rich fruit character, bright acidity and complexity.”
Chocolate Craving? Did you know that the darker the chocolate, the more likely it will be to taste good with red wine (partly because chocolate with a higher percentage of cacao has less sugar)? With its depth of complexity and richness of flavor, Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with dark, rich chocolates. “Dense, ripe blackcurrant nose, with a hint of herbaceousness. A ‘recommended’ wine.” – Decanter
