  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).

8% Shiraz. Focused, medium-depth intensity suggestions of black cherries, brush and briar in the aromas start this wine off well, and the fairly supple texture at entry adds its own positive spin. The wines middling fruit holds well across the palate and runs into light tannin at the close.

In many ways this wine embodies the spirit of our winery traditional and progressive, accessible yet exceptional, sturdy but refined. The abundant fruit and bold jammy flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the western bench of the valley are accentuated by concentrated black fruit flavors from mountain and hilltop fruit. Walking Tree is an exceptionally structured wine that shows soft, supple approachability upon release. - ONDINE CHATTAN, WINEMAKER
