Sourced from the Moulds Vineyard & Stagecoach Vineyards, the 2016 Mirror Cabernet Sauvignon opens with cassis and red bell pepper tones, with flinty and smoky accents that entice. The palate has good freshness and verve, with a lovely viscosity. Blackberry cobbler, mocha and creme de cassis flavors all marvelously come together alongside the vibrant mineral backbone. Outstanding in its youth, this beautiful wine will cellar well for the next two decades. Drink 2020-2035- 92

This was a great surprise! Not familiar with Mirror and their St Helena winery, but after being introduced tonight, I need to learn more. For $70/bottle, after some time, the dark fruits and oak emphasis really became pronounced. Very nice!

I pulled the cork and was surprised with a pretty nice nose. Maybe the long lasting affects of the flu have gone away and I can smell again. Blackberries like a fresh baked pie, tobacco and darkish chocolate. When I tasted it there were dark cherries, hint of plums, cigar box and a very faint hint of vanilla bean. This finished very nice and lingered just enough to remind you that you want more.

The 2013 shows great promise and is ready for drinking now. My experience is that Mirror gets significantly better with age . Buy it if you find it. March 2018.
