Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
An approachable and extraverted Cabernet Sauvignon from the slopes of Round Mountain. Dark cherry, vanilla, and blackberry cola feature on the nose and continue on the soft lush palate. Hints of wild herbs and toasted bread appear on the lively finish.
Vineyard Notes
At 2,000-2,200 feet above sea level, the Volcano Ridge Vineyard is located on the steep slopes of an extinct cinder cone volcano better known as Round Mountain Volcano. The pure volcanic soils, or “tephra”, are extremely well-drained and are ideal for vine stress and restricting crop yields, resulting in concentrated and complex wines with opulent fruit flavor.
Production Notes
At Brassfield Estate, our winemaking emphasizes quality and the use of traditional handcrafted techniques, which create wines that have both power and finesse. During harvest we used aerative pump overs and finished with extended maceration with heating of the must. The malolactic fermentation takes place in our caves using native bacteria. The Cabernet was sent to 25% new French oak and 75% neutral oak barrels. The wine was stirred monthly on its lees to achieve body and texture. The wine was fined, but bottled without filtration.
