About Ridge 2017 Geyserville, Alexander Valley

This is the latest release of Ridge Geyserville! An Iconic wine, Ridge Geyserville is a traditional field blend of Zinfandel and its complementary varieties: Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante. Each vintage is unique and yet they do have elements in common. It's among the most age-worthy of Ridge wines, Geyserville often drinks beautifully well beyond 10 years of age. This 2017 is a blend of 68% Zinfandel, 18% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah and 2% Alicante Bousche, aged 12 months in 100% air-dried American oak barrels, 20% new.



The Wine Advocate scored this 94 points saying "The 2017 Geyserville is a blend of 68% Zinfandel, 18% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah and 2% Alicante Bouschet, aged 14 months in American oak, 16% new. Medium ruby, it opens with lilac, chocolate box and stone fruit hints with warm blackcurrants, red and black cherries, cranberries, cedar, tobacco leaf and dusty earth. Medium to full-bodied, it opens slowly in the mouth to pure fruits supported by fine, chalky tannins and integrated freshness on the very long finish. This is wound tight but has loads of potential and will require at least another few years in bottle."
