Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Mira is 65% Monastrell, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Garnacha Tintorera aged in 60-70% new French oak. Deep crimson-colored, the wine has an excellent bouquet of pain grille, mineral/creosote, black cherry, and blueberry. This leads to a smooth-textured, focused, elegant effort with ample spicy fruit, very good depth and breadth, and a long, pure finish. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 6-8 years.

Bodegas Sierra Salinas
In 2000 the Castano family acquired and re-organized old vineyards located at the foot of the Sierra Salinas Mountains, between the provinces of Murcia and Alicante, and built the Bodegas Sierra Salinas. The vineyards are situated at diverse altitudes with a range of soil types and arid micro-climates characterized by cold winters and warm summers.

Five different grape varieties are grown on the property including: non-irrigated Monastrell bush vines (50% of the total density of the plantation) and irrigated Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tintorera and Petit Verdot.
