Winemaker's Notes:

"This beautiful wine is the quintessential Alexander Valley Cabernet... a great price for the quality. Geyser Peak is at the top of their game."
-Wine Enthusiast

This wine's deep, vibrant, purple-black color is typical of Geyser Peak Winery Cabernet. On the nose, classic Alexander Valley aromas of ripe blackberry fruit and cassis burst from the glass. The lively intensity of this wine's fruit aromas and flavors, as well as the restrained, cedary oak characters, which support the fruit without dominating it, are a hallmark of the winery's style. A juicy, round and generous palate harmonizes blackberry and black cherry fruit with toasty oak and a hint of spice. Fine-grained tannins mingle with persistent fruit flavors on the lingering finish.

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.
