2012 Mirror Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley


Our 8th release is another classic style Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

2011 Mirror Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Tech SheetThe aromas of this Cabernet Sauvignon are an ever evolving blend of dry rose petals, ripe blackberries, pipe tobacco, dark chocolate and baking spices.  The palate offers layers of complexity – a soft, ripe entry of dark cherry with hints of leather followed by a concentrated core of ripe plum, highlights of vanilla, cinnamon and cedar.  The balanced acidity delivers a seamless harmony of fruit and rich tannins that integrate into a clean and long lasting elegant finish.

Winemaker Notes:  The grapes were destemmed and hand sorted.  Then whole berry processed to manage tannin extraction.  14 days of fermentation with multiple gentle punch downs extract color and flavor compounds from the skins.  Barrel aged 20 months in French Oak, half new oak and half neutral oak.  Sur lies for two months during initial aging.

Harvest Date:  October 26th, 2012

Alcohol %:  14.5

Vineyards:  Oakville, St. Helena, and Yountville

Total Production:  768 cases

2012 Mirror Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Cimarossa Vineyard


Our 4th release from the Cimarossa Vineyard on Howell Mountain, 1,800 feet above the valley floor.

2011 Mirror Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Tech Sheet

The aromas and bouquet of this Cabernet Sauvignon are a complex and rich blend of blackberry jam, fresh blueberries, dry rose petals complimented with glimmers of nutmeg, cinnamon and cedar.  The palate follows with a concentrated core of dark berries, baking spices, and dark chocolate with hints of dry grass and California Bay Laurel.  The balanced acid, fruit, and beautifully ripe mountain tannins deliver a powerful yet elegant, evolving sensory experience that will leave a clean and lasting finish on the palate.

Winemaker Notes:  The grapes were destemmed, hand sorted and whole berry processed to manage tannin extraction. 16 days of fermentation with multiple gentle punch downs extract color and flavor compounds from the skins. For the first two months of aging the wine is sur lies and stirred every other week for at least the first two months or until the tannins begin to integrate into the wine. Barrel aging extends for at least 22 months in 100% French Oak, three quarters new oak and one quarter neutral oak so as not to overpower the fruit from the mountain grapes.
