Food Pairings for Geyser Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Reserve
Berries and cherries dominate both the nose and palate of this wine. Blackberries and red Bing cherries are most distinct, though hinting notes of marionberries are there as well. The traditional methods of the winemaker come through in the balance of acid and tannin that create a great opportunity to age the wine or drink it earlier if desired. Fantastic when paired with marinated and grilled red meats.
Nice, bold wine, very flavorful.

External Reviews for Geyser Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Reserve
This red displays savory herb, sage, cedar and currant notes, with a licorice edge to the dried berry flavors. Drink now through 2016. 6,000 cases made. -JL Shows strong, extracted blackberry and black cherry flavors, with a pie-filling spicy intensity. Almost too much of a good thing. Might improve a little in the bottle with a year or two. - S.H.
This wine's clean red fruit expands with air, developing subtle notes of cassis and spice. It's an elegant cabernet, ready to decant and an easy match for roast leg of lamb.
Winemaker Darrel Groom gained invaluable experience producing Penfolds Grange in Australia. Now he operates Geyser Peak where he turns out first rate Sonoma county wines like this Reserve3 Cab. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points and said "This is a big, tannic and dry Cabernet, but it’s very elegant, and shows the pedigree of Alexander Valley at its best. Impeccably balanced in acidity and tannins, the fruit is pure blackberries and black currants, with a wonderful earthiness suggesting dried sage and thyme. Should develop nicely over the next 6–8 years."
Rich, full-bodied, ripe and intense, with mocha and dill-laced currant, turning oakier while gaining depth and complexity. More drying on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 3,000 cases made. -JL
A deep dense ruby color, this sumptuous Cabernet explodes with expressive aromas of black cherry and cassis complimented by notes of black pepper, mocha, and vanilla. The palate is a mouthful of juicy ripe berries and spice, seamlessly integrated into a long finish of fine grained tannins. The classic steakhouse wine, pair with well marbled rib eye, a New York steak or rack of lamb
Smooth and cedary, with spice, floral, herb, cherry and mineral notes of modest depth and proportion. Mild tannins. Drink now through 2005. 5,200 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Geyser Peak Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
In recent years, Geyser Peak Winery’s estate Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards have come into their own. Ascentia Vineyard, which sits on rolling hillsides of diverse soil types and sun exposures, and Walking Tree Vineyard, on an East-facing slope just above the winery, are cultivated year-round by a dedicated team. Located in the warmer central and Northern parts of valley, these vineyards form the core of the winery’s Cabernet program. Here, the vines yield grapes of intense berry fruit aromas and flavors and richly textured palate structures. We use an array of techniques, including small and open-top fermenters, rotary fermenters and barrel fermentation to craft this wine. A given vineyard might be harvested four or five times, each time taking only what is at optimal ripeness. Then, we keep these small lots separate and mature them for three months. After extensive trial blending, the master blend is matured in a balanced mixture of new, one and two-year old barrels prior to final blending and bottling.
Richly colored, this powerful wine shows heady aromas of blackberry and blueberry fruit, as well as sweet vanillin oak and a hint of mint. Richly colored, this powerful wine shows heady aromas of blackberry and blueberry fruit, as well as sweet vanillin oak and a hint of mint. Rich and decadent on the palate, the wine’s power cedes to a pleasing, underlying elegance, both voluptuous and tannic at the same time. Flavors of blueberry and black cherry are underlain by a fine seam of acidity, which mingles with tannins and fruit on a persistent finish.
Aged 18 months.
