Miguel is a Tempranillo based wine with medium body, good structure, and persistent acidity. It is highly complex, with rounded and ripe tannins. Miguel shows notes of red berries, cherries, and tobacco with smoke, vanilla, and toast from the 10 months aging in French and American oak barrels

Cuisine: Miguel pairs well with grilled game meats, braised oxtail, rotisserie chicken, charcuterie, and strong cheeses.

interesting and refined
What is most striking about this wine is how successful the blend is. It's not a blend that would first come to mind, but each grape adds it's character for an overall harmonious experience. As with most blends, there are layers of flavors. The acidity is good but not overwhelming, the tannins are soft but not faded and the alcohol level is high as you would expect for this hot region but contained (no afterburn). The finish is long and pleasant, with just enough wood to provide a little more body. I'm not a fan of over-wooded wines and this one isn't. Overall, this is an an unusual blend of a big but not plump wine with a lot of of flavor layers, so not one of these monolithic single varietal wines. Great for richer, beef-type foods but also very drinkable on its own. Open it 4 hours ahead of time for the full experience. Thank you TFW for bringing this wine to the USA!
