Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red with purple accents. On the nose, aromas of currant, black plum, blueberry, nutty oak. The palate expresses layers of currant, black cherry and toasty oak filing out on the palate with a generous wave of wild berry and briar fruit. Black tea, a hint of soy and sleek tannins bring weight and length to the dominant fruit and a shade of well-proportioned oak contributes sweetness to the finish.

About Geyser Peak Winery:

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.
