Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored red blend from Miro opens with a dark chocolate and mild black cherry and red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry with notes of red plum and old oak. I also detected some minerality throughout. The finish is dry and its flavors and tannins linger for quite some time. This wine would pair well with a pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Cuvee Sasha Concept: My goal was to create a distinctive yet accessible GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) blend. I’ve always had a special preference for the great wines of Southern France and with this inaugural release I’m offering my California version of this style. What I love about Grenache is the seductively inviting aromas of jammy strawberries, dry apricots, guava and cranberry with hint of dry rose petals and Herbs de Provence that make you smell the wine over and over again. The mouthfeel is clean, fresh and lively without any heaviness with focused acidity and food friendly softness.
