Product Overview

Winery's Notes:
"This parcel of the property has near perfect south-south west exposures, and a slope that guarantees excellent drainage. We called it THE LAVA BLOCK because that’s what it is. There is no soil, only large chunks of lava, the residue of a volcanic eruption millions of years ago when the entire Southern Mayacamas was under six miles of water. The lava hit the water and shattered. And remained that way for millions of years, as the waters receded to the Bay, and a field of wild oats sprung up.

A kaleidoscopic array of aromas capture the attention. Unending layers of black cherry, currant, raspberry and intense violet intermingle with notes of crushed rock, apricot and pencil lead. Lavender, black cardamom and new suede add a dynamic interplay of savory qualities. The palate is oozing with black and purple fruits and the hallmark minerality races across the tongue. The opulent flavors are supported by mouth-watering acidity and fine tannins. Sophisticated, complex, seamless. This wine is just beginning to reveal its elegance and complexity. A wine for the ages."

96 Points - Vinous
"The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Lava Black is a potent, explosive wine. Rocky soils yield a potent, intensely mineral-drenched Cabernet Sauvignon. Crushed rocks, graphite, chocolate, lavender, incense and crème de cassis all race across the palate, supported by salivating acids and big yet well-balanced tannins." -AG, Dec/2023
