About the Wine

Miro Tcholakov, the genius behind this amazing wine, began his journey in Bulgaria, a place with a centuries-old tradition of making wine. As a young boy, Miro learned the art of winemaking from his grandfather, and his fascination with this age-old craft only grew stronger over the years.

After completing his viticulture and enology studies at the Higher Institute of Agriculture in Plovdiv, Miro embarked on an international adventure. In 1990, he found himself in Napa Valley, California, where he joined the team at Dry Creek Vineyard as a harvest intern. Little did he know that this temporary position would pave the way for his illustrious winemaking career. 

In 1998, Miro took on the role of Winemaker at Trentadue Winery, where he continues to create world-class, award-winning wines to this day. His dedication to winemaking excellence led him to produce his own wines, gaining recognition and acclaim from renowned critics like Robert Parker. His expertise even extended to consulting for the Bulgarian VINI wine brand, and in 2020, he acquired BulgarianWine.com to bring the flavors of Bulgaria to wine enthusiasts worldwide.

2021 was an incredible vintage for Russian River Valley. Vinous Media blessed this year with a 97-point review, and said: "The 2021 Pinot Noirs are generally potent, brooding wines with dark fruit profiles and tons of textural depth."  

Aging: 17 months in 20% new European oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: 100% Zinfandel. This wine is vibrant and lively, featuring strong Zinfandel characteristics like concentrated aromas of dark cherries, blueberries, plums, and a touch of raisins. It's been gently aged in oak barrels, which adds subtle hints of vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a touch of toasty and smoky notes. Solid body with medium thickness and very smooth, elegant tannins that make the wine's finish long and juicy.
