Bordeaux Red Blends
from Sonoma County, California
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
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.
