Edition 10


Edition 10

May 2015

Greetings from the Mountain Wine Club, where high elevations and rugged mountain conditions reward us with wines that are bold, dramatic,
and often slightly untamed.

Your May club shipment is comprised of two of our rarest, smallest production bottlings: the 2012 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Franc and the 2012 Mt. Brave Mt. Veeder Malbec. 2012, a year where flavor concentration, cluster maturity, acid, and tannin were in perfect sync throughout the growing season, is already considered one of the great vintages.
