Brassfield Estate Winery Petite Sirah High Valley Volcano Ridge 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Volcano Ridge vineyard is located on the steep slopes of an extinct cinder cone at 2,200 feet above sea level. The pure volcanic soils are extremely well-drained and are ideal for vine stress and restricting crop yields. This first crop off this new third leaf vineyard produced a wine of intense concentrated and complex aromas, deep hues, and opulent fruit flavors.

At Brassfield Estate, we believe wine is truly an expression of the grapes and where they are grown. Soils, microclimates, and vineyard practices are the major contributing factors for world class wine. The very finest wines in the world have one thing in common: They are all estate-grown and estate-bottled, meaning that they are crafted entirely from grapes grown on the winery’s own property where they are vinified and bottled on the premise. This principle is the foundation at Brassfield Estate. With High Valley’s diverse soils & microclimates, we have planted 19 different varietals covering over 350 acres of vineyard. Brassfield Estate controls every aspect of the Viticultural development: •Careful research matching correct varietals to optimal vineyard site. •Development control in planting for spacing, row direction, canopy/trellis development and choice of root stock. •Farming philosophy of sustainable agriculture and deficit irrigation done with meticulous care for optimum grape quality. •Harvest practices of hand picking, use of half ton bins and limited movement to winery to prevent fruit damage. •Winemaking in the hands of winemaker.
