 2016 High Valley
Volcano Ridge Vineyard
Red Blend
$30 at the winery!




It wouldn't be right if we didn't find an amazing deal to start the year off on the right note! Only a few days into the year and we are predicting this will be one of our best selling Red Blends in 2020!

The reason being is that we have history with this wine going back to the 2013 vintage when we sold boatloads of this terrific Red Blend!  We passed on the 2014 and 2015 vintages as both were good but not nearly to the level of the 2013.

This 2016 on the other hand, we feel, is actually better than the remarkable 2013 bottling. A blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Malbec, Mourvedre, Grenache and Zinfandel. Six different varietals add up to one very delicious Red Blend that is not to be missed. The difference between this 2016 and the 2013?
This bottling has a bigger more full bodied presence but still maintains its fruit forward flavors with layers of complexity. Drinking well right out of the bottle it gets better and better the longer it stays in the glass.
This is rarely found in a wine under $15!

Named Eruption as it comes from a vineyard called Volcano Ridge (there is an actual extinct volcano in this valley), this wine explodes with layers and layers of flavor.

A great WOM to start a new year and a new decade that will surely appeal to so many different wine palates!

See you soon!
