Rangeland Mistletoe: Christmas in July!
Mistletoe Release Special
Years ago I was making wine from my new vineyard in the family cellar. We bottled a curious blend at a holiday party and a great time was had by all. Good cheer, a feeling of love and some actual lust ensued. We called the wine Mistletoe in appreciation of the season and the countless local oak trees that bear the picturesque bundles of this hemiparasite. Look it up. Myth would have it that mistletoe bestows fertility, protects against poisons, wards off evil spirits, and is an aphrodisiac. But I wouldn't know anything about that, baby.
Well, people have been asking about our 2019 Mistletoe. Our tasting room manager Michelle has had to ward off hundreds of inquiries since the 2018 Mistletoe sold out in a blaze of glory last year. So we are bringing a little Christmas cheer to July and unleashing the 2019 Mistletoe kraken.
As in previous vintages, the 2019 Mistletoe includes Cabernet and Syrah, which is the unconventional hero among Paso blends. It was awarded a gold medal and 93 points in the prestigious Sunset International Wine Competition. Its beautiful dark garnet color yields sagey aromas. A mid-palate of raspberry compote is energized by vivid acidity. It finishes with silky tannins and savory notes of baking spice. I recently brought a case home to trial. My family and guests wiped it out in a matter of days, with the following profound commentary: "Yummm."
For July only, we are offering a 12 bottle case of Rangeland 2018 Mistletoe for $300, shipping included, plus your club discount. That's just $25 per bottle versus the list price of $35, plus your discount. Order here.
