Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc.

First produced in 1983, Geyser Peak Reserve Alexandre is a traditional blend of five classic Bordeaux red grape varietals. Each year winemaker Mick Schroeter relies on traditional, small-lot fermentation, rigorous selection and extensive trial blending to achieve a consistently stylish, elegantly balanced wine.

The twenty-two mile Alexander Valley region flanks the Russian River in Sonoma County and is known for its multiple terroirs. First planted to wine grapes by namesake pioneer Cyrus Alexander in 1846, the valley is one of the state's oldest and most distinguished growing regions.

Seductively styled, this wine builds up layers of flavor around a focused core of blackcurrant, black cherry and blueberry fruit, from the initial aromas to the plush, focused palate. Hints of oak and spice add complexity, but it's the generous fruit and rich texture that anchor the mid-palate. Turning graceful on the finish, this big, voluptuous wine reveals ripe tannins and a luxurious aftertaste that keeps on going. Overall, balance, elegance and harmony are the hallmarks of this wine.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
