WA 88 Vinous 88 Pts - According to Robert Parker - The best red is the 2013 Proprietary Red Eruption, another intriguing blend of Malbec, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre. The good news is there are 23,000 cases of this excellent value, which exhibits dark berry fruit along with some plums, Asian spice, and touches of licorice, earth and meat. It is rich, chewy and medium-bodied, with terrific fruit intensity. Drink it over the next several years.
According to Antonio Galloni - Brassfield's 2013 Eruption offers pretty much what the label suggests, voluptuous, super-ripe dark fruit and tons of intensity. Racy, powerful and opulent, the 2013 is a tasty, budget-friendly wine to drink now and over the next 2-3 years.
Tasting Notes - The 2013 Eruption is rich and intense. The wine exhibits aromas of blackberries, fresh baked bread, stewed plums, giving way to flavors that are jammy, and ripe. The palate explodes with ripe blueberries, mixed berry tart, fresh tobacco leaf, and toasty vanilla notes. The texture of Eruption is perhaps its most distinguishing trait - mouth-coating with an endless finish. 38% Malbec, 36% Syrah, 16% Mourvèdre and 10% Petite Sirah. 14.4% ABV.
