Winemaker's Notes:

This is a big, rich complex Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep, inky crimson in color. The nose is dominated by lifted berry and cassis fruit combined with smoky barrel ferment and sweet vanilla and cedar oak characters. The palate has great depth of concentrated Cabernet fruit and a backbone of fine-grained tannin. Due to the limited handling, this wine may develop a small amount of sediment over time.

About Geyser Peak:

One of California's oldest and most award-winning wineries, Geyser Peak was founded in 1880, a pioneer of the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, this beautiful setting overlooks Geyserville, the Russian River and the northern end of Alexander Valley.

The winery consistently garners some of the most prestigious awards in winemaking, including Winery of the Year and Winemaker of the Year honors. Its outstanding team of winemakers and viticulturalists are noted for fruit-forward, food-friendly wines from prime vineyard sources in the Alexander Valley.
