2019 Volcanique Reserve
On allocation: our reserve estate 2019 Volcanique is a bold and voluptuous blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc from the legendary volcanic West Paso Robles estate vineyard
Volcanique from Carmody McKnight Estate Wines is a vivid terroir experience of pure natural wine derived from original, own-rooted, un-grafted, non-GMO grapes with no chemicals in the vineyard or in the wine. Truly sustainable from a natural 30-year mineral-rich volcanic vineyard to a natural non-factory winery -- an above ground cellar guaranteeing native yeasts and classic wine making.
Gorgeously complex, a wondrous display of spicy, mocha-laced currant intermingling with ripe black cherry, cassis, sage and white chocolate. Deeply-layered, intense, with a long, complex finish.
