Geyser Peak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

I was impressed by the quality of this Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It starts off with aromas of ripe blackberries and peppery spice. The flavors of black cherries and expresso are bright and fresh, with soft tannins. Serve with meat loaf and sauteacute;ed mushrooms.

  Founded in 1880, Geyser Peak Winery is one of California’s oldest and most award-winning wineries. Founded by Augustus Quitzow, the winery was built in 1882 in Geyserville, making it one of the pioneering California wineries of the time. Geyser Peak Winery consists of 5 vineyards, one of which is located in the Russian River Valley AVA, while the others are in Alexander Valley. Since most of the grapes come from Alexander Valley, the growing regions have long ripening seasons. Alexander Valley is a great region for growing Cabernet Sauvignon vines, but Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc are also successfully grown. Ondine Chattan and Jaeson Mackura, winemakers for Geyser Peak Winery, are also behind the screw cap movement that is very controversial among wineries and consumers alike. All of their white wines are bottled using screw caps, or “Stelvin closures” as they are often called (Stelvin is actually a brand of screw caps, like Ziplock is a brand synonymous with zip bags and Xerox is a brand synonymous with photocopy machines).

You get lots of rich, extracted blackberry, cherry and mocha flavors in this sweet, softly tannic young wine. For the price, itrsquo;s a classy wine to drink now.

Light cherry fruit and gruff, coffee-scented tannins meld into a soft and generous cabernet with a little air. Itandrsquo;s simple and juicy, to serve with roast lamb.

Founded in 1880 by Augustus Quitzow, one of Sonoma County's pioneer winemakers, the original winery was built in Geyserville in 1882. Today, Geyser Peak is one of the most award-winning wineries in Sonoma County.

The Alexander Valley offers an array of soils, exposures, and elevations in which to grow Cabernet Sauvignon. Blending components from the valley floor, benchlands, and hillsides allows us to produce a wine with great dimension from a single appellation. Our estate vineyards that surround the winery have become an important component of this wine and we work to optimize each vineyard block to produce fruit of great distinction and character. - WineryAPPELLATION: ALEXANDER VALLEYGRAPE VARIETY: CABERNET SAUVIGNON WITH SHIRAZ, PETIT VERDOT AND TANNATSTORAGE/TYPE: 100% AMERICAN OAK 20% NEW OAK, 80% A BALANCED MIXTURE OF ONE-, TWO- & THREE, YEAR OLD OAKMATURATION TIME: 15 MONTHSALCOHOL - 13.5%pH - 3.61T.A - 6.2 g/LR.S. - DRY
