Aromatic and elegant blend of ripe blackberry, plum and dry grass with accents of dark chocolate and baking spices.

Soft, integrated tannins carry through to a silky, elegant and clean finish.

Mirror was founded by former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Rick Mirer. The Mirror Napa Valley story begins with their two original cabernet vineyards in St Helena. These two sources of Cabernet literally “mirror” each other across the Napa Valley. The western half is just above Highway 29 and the eastern half is perched above the Silverado Trail. Today they are producing top of the line Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker, Rob Lawson seeks to “capture the true flavors and regional character of the varietal by pairing New World technology with traditional techniques” to create wines that are both fruit forward and robust in flavor and texture.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Cimarossa Vineyard, Howell Mountain, Napa Valley.

The grapes were destemmed, hand sorted and whole berry processed to manage tannin extraction. Sixteen days of fermentation with multiple gentle punch downs extracted color and flavor compounds from then skins. During 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.
