MIRA Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2012


MIRA Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2012

A beautiful combination of provocative aromas of deep dark fruit, including black cherry, ripe blueberry and plum, with hints of espresso and anise. This wine develops tremendous complexity in the glass evolving into an array of deep berry, cedar, and leather. A signature Stags Leap Cabernet displaying both power and elegance.

MIRA Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2012

Deep dark fruit aromas with anise

Production 644 Cases
Vintage 2012
Appellation Stags Leap District AVA, Napa Valley
Bottling Date January 2015

Made from grapes from a single vineyard in the heart Stags Leap District AVA, this wine embodies the true essence of acclaimed Stags Leap Cabernet. The volcanic soils in which the grapes for this wine were grown and the cool, marine breezes that are funneled through the region by its unique geography produce some of the most distinct and prices Cabernet Sauvignons in the world.

Fifty days skin contact. Barrel fermented in small French oak tanks and aged in 100% new French oak for 26 months. Bottled non-fined and non-filtered.

Rich, decadent and complex; a high benchmark for the great 2012 vintage – Rick Rubel, Advanced Sommelier

A brilliant vintage from start to finish, 2012 gave us nothing but perfect ripening weather. Warm days, cool nights and not a drop of rain until all of our grapes were in the cellar. A bountiful harvest with some of the best fruit ever.

93 Points, Gold Medal, Exceptional
“Deep purple color. Fruity aromas and flavors of dried cassis, waxy honeycomb, and coal with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, engaging, medium-long spiced berries and nuts, chocolate, cedar, and earth finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak. A rich, chewy Napa cabernet that is sure to please.”

92 Points
“Rich and fruity with lots of blackberry and currant character. Full body, chewy tannins and a medium finish. Needs a little time to soften. Better in 2018.”
