2012 Brassfield Estate Eruption Red Blend$15.95 -- 2012 Brassfield Estate Volcano Ridge Vineyard Eruption Red
The 2012 Eruption is rich and intense. The wine has aromas of fresh blueberries, toasted brioche, black cherries, and mocha, giving way to flavors that are jammy, ripe and unctuous. The palate explodes with blackberries, dark currants, and clove while it layers supple and round coating tannins, making the wine both hedonistic while simultaneously elegant. The texture of this wine is perhaps its most distinguishing trait – mouth-coating with an endless finish. Be certain to have a second bottle on hand, the first won’t last very long. Assuming you have to pair this wine with food, it will enhance bbq pork spareribs, filet mignon or Penne alla’Amatriciana with fresh tomatoes, capers, onions, pancetta and pecorino cheese.
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.
