Geyser Peak Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The cabernet grown in the Alexander Valley shows a special profile: aromas of ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit dominate. In typical Geyser Peak style, the bright fruit is nicely supported by a restrained oak character. The palate is rich, round and lush.

  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 nice Alexander Valley Cabernet. The tannins are there but balanced. there is some backbone and structure to this wine....along with a very beautiful color of deep crimson. This is a very good value for what you actually pay. The 2009 was held back an additional year in bottle storage before it was released. Nice value!

Deep red with purple accents. On the nose: currant, black plum, blueberry, nutty oak. The palate expresses layers of currant, black cherry and toasty oak filing out on the palate with a generous wave of wild berry and briar fruit. Black tea, a hint of soy and sleek tannins bring weight and length to the dominant fruit and a shade of well-proportioned oak contributes sweetness to the finish. - Winery

This wine is a classic example of Geyser Peak’s intense, lively style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Uplifted fruit flavors of red and black cherry predominate in the aroma, but the underlying complexity hint
