Gustavo Gonzalez, Mira Winemaker states that his “Cabernet Franc is the first in a series of wines that are truly reflective of Napa Valley and  defines who we are as a winery”.  Having worked with the elite growers of Schweizer and Hyde Vineyards for years, the respect these growers have for Gonzalez and the wines he produces has provided him access to the best fruit portfolio in the Valley.

The Collectors series Cabernet Franc has a 150 case production and can be purchased for $85/bottle. Purchases of the first vintage release will receive priority on subsequent vintage releases. Click here to purchase.

With Schweizer’s location in the heart of the famous Stags Leap District, the smallest sub-appellation in the Napa Valley and noted for its distinctive soil composition and ability to produce top tier Cabernet Sauvignon, Mira’’s Schweizer Cabernet is sure to become a sought-after classic.  With the Schweizer family’s history of ownership of this small 40-acre vineyard and the land’s 100+ history of grape growing, Schweizer Vineyard truly is the most famous vineyard you’’ve never heard of, until now.  Though selling its grapes to a small number of well-known producers for years, Mira’’s 2012 Schweizer Cabernet Sauvignon marks the first time the Schweizer family has permitted the designation of its vineyard on a producer’s label.

Rounding out the Collectors Series with wines from Hyde Vineyard in the Carneros region makes for a portfolio for true wine collectors and represents a series of wines sure to be envied by the most discerning oenophile.  With Hyde’’s acclaim as one of the top California vineyards.
