Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyard is located in Lake County on a unique and beautiful property where the vineyard elevation ranges from 1800 to 3000 ft. Renowned winemaker, David Ramey makes the wines for this small family owned estate.
The pure volcanic soils of Volcano Ridge Vineyard lie on the steep slopes of an extinct cinder cone. It yields a wine full of intensity and elegance as unique as the land from which it comes. Eruption is a proprietary blend of Syrah, Mourvdre, Malbec, Petite Sirah, Tempranillo, Zinfandel, and Grenache.
This Eruption is rich and intense. The wine has aromas of dark berry; sandalwood and cocoa, giving way to flavors that are jammy, ripe and expressive. The palate is layered with supple and round tannins, making the wine both hedonistic while simultaneously elegant.
