Winemaker's Notes:

The vibrant, deeply crimson, and totally opaqu color of this wine speak to its hisslide origins, promising intensity and rich fruit. From the first approach on the nose, the wine's classic Alexander Valley aromas of black cherry, wilde blackberry and cassis dominate, with accent notes of sweet vanilla and a hint of smokiness. A rich, tight coil of intense blackberry and black currant fruit and spice are the hallmarks of the palate. These deep fruit flavors give way seamlessly on the fishish to a deft supporting structure of fine-grained tannin, at which point dark fruit flavors reappear to balance the tannin and carry the wine to a persistent 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.

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.
