This lot is a single-barrel bottling from our Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard on Atlas Peak
Our wines are harvested, fermented and aged for two years as separate one-ton, two-barrel lots
We pick the barrel we feel stands alone as our best to be bottled separately
Red Lava is a reference to our vineyard’s rocky volcanic soil and the amazing wine it produces
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon bottling is produced from VinRoc’s Atlas Peak vineyard. Located at an elevation of 1,600 ft., where the vines are grown on a steep hillside of volcanic, lava rock soil. The rugged terrain produces small yields of highly concentrated flavors and aromas. Notes of graphite, licorice, cedar and tobacco are intertwined in this magnificent wine. We have selected our best barrel, the crème de la crème, for your unique wine.
Wine is unfiltered
Single vineyard wine
Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
My wife and I built VinRoc from scratch. We learned and studied as we were planning and developing the vineyard and later building our winery. We soon found that Atlas Peak doesn't fit the textbook examples. The rugged rocky hillside that is the site of our Cabernet Vineyard required a different approach than the valley floor. My goal in making VinRoc is to produce a wine that truly reflects the unique qualities of our vineyard.
