Wine Review: Charles Creek Vineyards Miradero 2004 Cab Sauv/Merlot blend

We picked up this lively wine from Grocery Outlet and swirled and smelled, and swirled and smelled! Ripe fruit hits the nose followed by spice that lingers on the palate from the initial sip. Deep red color, this wine shows plenty of structure from the 2004 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon but is softened by the merlot blend. It’s a 67/33 Cab/Merlot blend from this producer that carries a light-medium mouthfeel and plenty of fruit and apparent spice.

A nice wine for enjoyment at $32 per bottle, even better at $4.99 from Grocery Outlet. This wine is showing potential to lay down for another year or two, and I’m guessing it’d soften up nicely.
