2013 Malbec
Mt. Veeder

95 Points - "The 2013 Malbec is a total turn-on. Intensely aromatic, bold and racy, the 2013 Malbec is one of the best wines I have tasted from Mt. Brave. Pine, mint, rose petal and blood orange notes develop in the glass, followed by a huge burst of red-toned fruit. This is one of the finest Napa Valley wines readers will find in its price range."
- Antonio Galloni,, October 2015

The 2013 growing season was another near perfect year. With only a day or two approaching 100 degrees, temperatures were steady and in the sweet spot of 85°-95°F. Dry conditions throughout allowed for ideal maturation and flavor concentration. On the palate of the 2013 Mt. Brave Malbec killer spice overlays rich boysenberry and black currants. A pop of fruit carries across to the finish which is clearly mountain structure based.
