Geyser Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 1999

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Intensely fragrant, with loads of Asian five-spice, cedar, lavender and blueberry tones. Tannins clamp down quickly, with earth, tart fresh herbs, and toasted oak flavors. Drink now through 2008.

  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).

A lean style of Cabernet, this starts off black and tight, then juices up in the end. There are cool green edges to the red fruit, ripened to a supple texture, but not too ripe to diminish the black earthiness of the tannin. Itrsquo;s restrained and ready for filet mignon.
