Region USA: CA - Sonoma - Alexander V.
Notes "Deeply structured, yet nimble on its feet. Blackberry, fresh fennel and brown baking spices build richness and layers toward medium-grained tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2030. 11,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator) Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of the Year, Rank #24

Additional Notes

"A beautiful red with lots of blackberries, cloves, stone, spice and purple fruit. It’s full and balanced with a creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Some graphite to the black fruit. More zin this year in the blend. 71% zinfandel, 19% carignan, 7% petite sirah and 3% alicante bouschet." (James Suckling) "Deep and rich in flavor, this full-bodied wine will continue improving with age. It shows generous, late-picked blackberry flavors along with accents of vanilla, milk chocolate and black pepper, while mild tannins give it some nice heft in the texture. Best through 2030." (Wine Enthusiast) "The oldest vines at Ridge’s Geyserville Vineyard were planted 130 years ago in a gravel wash off the Russian River. Today, the wine layers the fruit of successive generations of vines while combining zinfandel (71 percent) and carignane (19 percent) with petite sirah and alicante Bouschet. All those elements come together in a complex tapestry of flavor, smoky in its concentration, lasting on scents of herbs, flowers and berries. As elegant as the wine may be, it is not shy in its rich power. Geyserville often reaches its peak between ten and 20 years from the vintage and this one should age well." (Wine & Spirits Magazine)
