Ridge Geyserville is produced from Zinfandel (some coming from vines that are 130 years old), Carignan, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet grown in Alexander Valley, all co-fermented together and matured in American oak for 14 months.
“The 2017 Zinfandel Geyserville exudes energy, but it is also very tight and closed in on itself. Time in the glass helps the wine open up, but only to a limited extent. Pretty scents of leather, savoury herbs, spice and earthiness hint at what is to come. Readers should plan on being patient, but Ridge lovers know that. In most years, Geyserville starts hitting its stride around age ten.” Antonio Galloni (June 2019)
