Winemaker Notes

Smooth, rich and silky, this handcrafted wine finds its center around a deep core of blackcurrant, black cherry and raspberry fruit. Spice, cedar and earth notes add complexity, but it's the generous fruit and supple texture that anchor the mid-palate. Aiming for elegance over brawn, this voluptuous wine finishes with ripe tannins and a luxurious aftertaste that keeps on going. Overall, the 2004 Reserve Alexandre is a quintessential example of Alexander Valley terroir and of the region's supreme suitability for nurturing Bordeaux varieties.

First produced in 1983, Geyer 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.

Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 19% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

Wine & Spirits
The fruit is immediately present in this wine, though the firm tannins show more of the fruit skin than the juicier fresh cherry and blueberry flavors that come with air. Decant it and this elegant, balanced red is ready for lamb chops. Its length of flavor implies more complexity will develop with age.

Geyser Peak, California
Geyser Peak Geyser Peak Tasting Room Winery Image

Founded in 1880 as California’s 29th bonded winery, Geyser Peak Winery has more than 135 years of winemaking history in Sonoma County. Originally located perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, its namesake, it commanded a view of the thermal steam clouds that billowed from the mountain summit. Here, in this special place, geothermal activity created the diverse soil pro?les that make this region so exceptionally well suited to wine grape cultivation.

 At the forefront of production since its earliest days, Geyser Peak wines are sourced from prime vineyards that capture the essence of Sonoma. Today, located in Dry Creek Valley, Geyser Peak’s winemakers are carrying the winery’s rich history forward and staking an exciting claim on the future. Specializing in aromatic whites and rich reds, wines are crafted in small lots and fermented separately, then blended together to achieve full expression, balance and character. Each wine captures the essence of Sonoma and the appellation’s unique terroir, offering sophistication and ease, elevation and approachability, and taking us from casual days to connoisseur nights.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
