Geyser Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Reserve 2006
Wine Tasting Notes 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.

External Reviews for Geyser Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Reserve
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
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
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."
