Wine of the Week: 2010 Brassfield Eruption High Valley Red Wine

By S.Irene Virbila, Los Angeles Times

Brassfield Eruption label Here’s the wine to tote to dinner when someone is grilling a rack of humongous beef ribs or some mighty burgers. Eruption is a Lake County red from grapes grown on the slopes of an extinct volcano. Can’t get much more exotic than that, can you? The blend is Syrah, Tempranillo, Malbec, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah, and — ta dum — Zinfandel, with Syrah at the highest percentage, 22%.
