I personally fell in love with Mirassou Wines when I tried their Sunset Red a few months back. I was so excited when I found out about some of their 2011 new release wines. The heritage behind Mirassou Winery is really neat too. They began by a family that was coming from France to California. They initially were going to California to look for gold, but instead found that it was a great place to grow grapes. They have now been making wine for 6 generations. The wines are very impressive.
Mirassou 2011 Pinot Noir
I absolutely love this wine. It has a rich flavor, but it isn't too intense. It is easy to drink and crisp. I love that it is full of flavor. It has almost a berry like flavor. This is not a sweet wine. It is a nice dark wine that is perfect paired with red meats. This is one of the best Pinot Noir wines I have had. I am really impressed by the price of only around $12 too.
Mirassou 2011 California Merlot
I also really enjoyed this wine. This one was also full of flavor. It is a rich red wine. It is very dry, but very easy to drink. I found it to be very smooth. It also pairs perfectly with your favorite pasta dishes with red sauces. All of the grapes from this wine come from throughout California. This wine also impressed me with it's reasonable price of just about $12.
Mirassou 2011 California Cabernet Sauvignon
This is one of the best Cabernet wines that I have had. I usually find them to have way too much tanin and this wine was great. The Mirassou 2011 California Cabernet is one of the smoothest Cabernet wines that I have tasted. It is a dark, rich, red wine and it is full of flavor. The wine is full bodied, but it is very easy to drink. This bottle also retails for about $12.
These 3 wines are amazing and I know they will be wines I will be drinking again. You can learn more about Mirassou Winery by visiting their website. You can also connect with them on Facebook.
