Wine Review: This medium purple colored Merlot based opens with a blueberry and black raspberry bouquet with hints of chocolate and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, balanced, smooth and round. The flavor profile is mild chalky minerality and blueberry blend with notes of black cherry. We also detected hints of integrated light oak and cocoa dust. The finish is dry and its fine-grained tannins drift away nicely. The Panel would pair this wine with filet mignon or a veal chop. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2018 vintage marks our finest Estate Micho to date, advancing our signature marriage of two iconic Bordeaux varieties—Merlot and Cabernet. An opaque, purple-black color leads the way, followed by a mesmerizing, multilayered bouquet that bursts from the glass with abundant aromas of blue and black fruits. A full-bodied palate is enveloped by flavors of blueberry, blackberry, black currant and vanilla with hints of pencil shavings and chocolate-covered dark cherry. This wine is beautifully fresh and focused, all while showing a complex earthiness backed by mineral notes. The finish is long, lingering and unending—affirming this wine as a blockbuster that will reward careful cellaring for decades to come.
