Zinfandel & Zinfandel Blends
Red Table Wine
Located on the western edge of Sonoma’s Alexander Valley, Geyserville vineyard was Ridge’s first source of red wine grapes, aside from Monte Bello. The combination of Geyserville’s climate, gravelly soils, and varietal mix (Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Alicante, Mataro, etc.) imparts elegance and definition not usually associated with Zinfandel.
Does a “typical” Geyserville exist? Each vintage is unique, distinct, and extraordinary. Common elements include the blackest of blackberry fruit, peppery spice, tar, and cedar. The term “layered” was invented for Geyserville, as the wines evolve, re-inventing themselves in bottle, developing more nuance and complexity as years pass.
“The 2021 Geyserville hits the palate with a burst of dark red/purplish fruit, sweet spice, lavender, chocolate, dried herbs and American oak. I would be in no rush to open the 2021, as it is clearly an infant at this stage. The blend is 76% Zinfandel, 16% Carignane, 6% Petite Syrah and 2% Alicante Bouschet. The 2021 is a powerhouse, that much is pretty clear.”
