Brassfield Eruption Volcano Ridge Vineyard 2012

Brassfield Eruption Volcano Ridge Vineyard 2012

Sku: 057567

 Vinous 88 points (Feb 2014)
Another juicy, intense wine, the appropriately named 2012 Eruption bursts from the glass with dark red cherry, plum, spice and licorice. This, too, is a solid choice for near-term drinking.
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Nov 2014)
A Rhone Ranger blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre and Grenache, the 2012 Eruption is a savory, heady, plum red revealing a dark plum/ruby color, and lots of black cherry and berry fruit intermixed with pepper, roasted meats and dried herbs. Spicy, medium-bodied, fleshy and delicious, it can be consumed over the next 1-2 years.

Wine maker notes
Volcano Ridge Vineyard is located on the steep slopes of an extinct cinder cone at 2,200 feet above sea level on the eastern end of High Valley. The pure volcanic soils are ideal for vine stress, restricting crop yields, and making wine that has both intensity and elegance.
