    Winemaker Notes

    A great example of varietal Malbec. Bright crimson red color. Intensely fruity with hints of raspberry and blackberry, earthiness, cedar and light spicy notes with sweet vanillin oak in the background. Berry fruit characters dominate the palate in this elegant style of wine which has a similar structure to that of Merlot. The flavor is lingering with a finish of soft, round tannins. Medium term cellaring of two to five years will enhance and complex the wine further.

    Malbec grapes for this wine come the Trione vineyards, Nervo Ranch in the Alexander Valley. A portion of the wine was used in the 1999 Reserve Alexandre Meritage blend with the balance being used for this Winemaker's Selection wine. A six-day on-skin ferment resulted in a wine with rich color and fruit without excessive tannic extraction. After fermentation, the wine was matured in small French oak barrels.

    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.

    Trentino-Alto Adige

    View all wine

    A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino. Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of large volumes of wine made from non-native grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio produced here, and Merlot is common as well.

    The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) is more focused on smaller-scale viticulture, and greater value is placed on local varieties, though international varieties are widely planted as well. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are planted at extreme altitude on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure. Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero. The primary white grapes are Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Müller Thurgau, and others. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot Grigio in Italy is made here.
