Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
There’s a brambly note to the blackberry and dark fruit core of this wine, along with hints of cedar, new leather, Santa Rosa Plum, and dark chocolate. It’s impressively robust and vibrant on the palate. Great structure and a full body make for a long, powerful and textured finish.
Vineyard Notes
Adjacent to an ancient volcanic cinder cone and nestled into the remote eastern edge of High Valley our Volcano Ridge vineyard features steep slopes and strikingly red volcanic soils. Originally planted in 2003 and 2004, the vineyard totals 85 acres and is planted to a sizable number of varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Zinfandel. The vineyard elevation ranges from 1900 ft. to 2200 ft. The volcanic sands and tephra (small, fused sand pebbles) of the Konocti series make for excellent drainage. Vines struggle in these soils, and the intensity of that struggle is reflected in the layers of complexity and structure, in the concentrated fruit, and in the final expression of Volcano Ridge wines.

Winemaker Notes
t Brassfield Estate, our winemaking emphasizes quality and the use of traditional handcrafted techniques, creating wines that have power and finesse. We harvested our Malbec grapes in the early morning to maximize quality. We kept our fermentation healthy with twice daily pump overs. The wine was then barreled down for malolactic fermentation in our caves. To showcase the fruit and structure of this wine, it was aged for 18 months in 100% French oak. The wine was stirred monthly on lees to achieve body and texture and was lightly fined and filtered for bottling.
