Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A full bodied Rhone-style blend with an unmistakable California accent. This wine is brimming with rich blackberry, raspberry, and plum notes. Ripe fruit reminiscent of blueberry pie is balanced by an underpinning of baking spices. The thick composition of this blend is complemented by a core of volcanic tannins and is drawn out to a lengthy finish by subtle minerality. Currently accessible, but age worthy for at least a decade.
Awards
Double Gold - San Francisco International Wine Competition and Best of Class at the North of the Gate Wine Competition.
Vineyard 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.
Production Notes
Our winemaking team is fanatical about quality and the use of traditional handcrafted techniques. It creates wines with both style and finesse. Fermented in small lots using native yeast, the wine is then aged in French and American oak barrels (30% New) for 8-10 months before being blended and bottled without filtration.
Winemaker Notes
The 2014 Eruption is a blend of 53% Malbec, 16% Syrah, 15% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 7% Mourvèdre.
