2018 MIRA HYDE VINEYARD NAPA VALLEY PINOT NOIR

Embodied by the mystical essence of its name derived from the Latin ‘miraculum’ and Greek ‘moira,’ Mira Winery stands as a testament to familial passion and a commitment to excellence. Mira’s journey is one of reverence for the land and the pursuit of crafting extraordinary wines.

Their alliance with Hyde Vineyard in Los Carneros epitomizes this ethos. Initiated in 1979 by the visionary Larry Hyde, the vineyard’s sun-kissed slopes and coastal whispers yield grapes of unparalleled quality. Revered as ‘The Wise Man of Carneros’ by the Wine Spectator, Larry Hyde’s fruit is the crown jewel coveted by discerning producers across the spectrum.”

Mira Winery stands out for its innovative approach to winemaking, blending modern methods with traditional techniques to create expressive, refined wines. A prime illustration is the Mira Hyde Vineyard Pinot Noir, based initially on the Calera clone but enhanced in 2018 by adding the Beba clone, achieving superior balance and captivating flavor.

Recently identified by the Wall Street Journal as one of “the five California vineyards you need to know,” Hyde Vineyard is the superstar of the Los Carneros region of Napa Valley. Larry Hyde began planting in what would become Hyde Vineyard in 1979. Recognizing the ideal conditions of East facing slopes, sun exposure and coastal influence, his experiments with vine row orientation, rootstock and clonal selection has resulted in a vineyard able to produce some of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, while also producing stellar Syrah and other less common Napa Valley varieties. Recognized as “The Wise Man of Carneros” by Wine Spectator, it is no wonder grapes from this vineyard are so strongly sought after and Mira is proud to produce more varietals from Hyde Vineyard than any other producer.
