How do you feel about volcanically grown Cabernet for over 50% off? Interested? Intrigued? Salivating ever so slightly at the thought of impeccable Cabernet at a cool $32? Well today is your happy, jump out of bed if you haven’t already, and race to the interwebs to grab your stash of this remarkable wine that will spin your head round and round when you realize it’s grown over 2000ft in the transverse valley of Lake County.

Now before you scoff and roll your eyes at Lake County, you are missing one of the most unique features of this region. VOLCANOS. And that means volcanic soil riddled with nutrients and complex layers where the vines struggle ever so much to develop and produce fruit of mind boggling, twirl-worthy quality that one wonders how they became ever so fortunate to know the true wonders of this magnificent region. Seriously. Read about the volcanos in Lake County featuring Brassfield over at Wine Enthusiast.

One of the beautiful things about Cab grown in volcanic soil is the texture, depth and flavor in the glass. The pure, intense development of the grape before any winemaking takes the wheel renders a wine with the utmost density, interest and intrigue. This Reserve Cab, sourced from vineyards ranging from 2100-2200ft, is a head spinning bottle of Cabernet if we ever had one (yes, we drank the bottle because it was so incredible it would be foolish to leave a drop behind so soon after uncorking!). Layers of blackberries, cassis, black plums and subtle hints of cherry are wrapped with notes of espresso, tobacco, leather and cocoa nibs. Dustings of violets, cigar box, warm spice and vanilla round out the finish to deliver a simply delightful Cabernet that overdelivers by leaps and bounds for the price (certainly OUR price…aren’t you lucky!).

$128 a 4-pack with shipping included. Any lover of Howell Mountain, Stags Leap or Atlas Peak reds will find a true soulmate in this wine (for a fraction of the price no less!). While it lasts, folks!

THE STORY TO KNOW

Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyards are located in the western section of High Valley at High Serenity Ranch on a truly distinctive and remarkable winegrowing property. Our valley floor vineyards sit at 1800 ft. elevation. The higher vineyard blocks rise to nearly 3000 ft. The temperature fluctuation on this unique property is always one of the most amazing experienced in California.

In 1973, Jerry Brassfield purchased the original 1,600 acres as a cattle ranch and wildlife preserve. Over the next three decades Jerry acquired additional contiguous properties. Today, the Brassfield Estate includes over 2,900 acres across both the eastern and the western sections of High Valley, as well as the Round Mountain Volcano.

In 1998, the different sections of the ranch were investigated for their potential to produce outstanding estate-grown wines. The vineyard development started in 2001 has grown to a state-of-the-art farming operation as well as our winemaking facility.
