  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).

The color is a deep brooding garnet that is so characteristic of a nice quality Cabernet from the Alexander Valley. The nose has a distinct note of mint overlaying some nice leather, dark chocolate and mossy granite notes. The taste is an explosion of intense cherry that gracefully transitions to some black pepper and Asian spice notes midpalate. The finish is just lovely, with some rather tightly wound tannins supporting a lush mouthfeel and a long, dry finish that seems to last for a minute or more!

Deep-Inky red in color, this wine has aromas of black cherry, vanilla and spicy oak. This wine drinks as smoothly as any cab I've ever enjoyed. This wine will immediately coat the mouth with dark, ripe fruit and vanilla from french oak, along with notes of spice. Can you say TANNINS? You'll be tasting the back-end of this wine for weeks. Enjoy with a juicy steak.

Founded in 1880 by Augustus Quitzow, one of Sonoma County's pioneer winemakers, the original winery was built in Geyserville in 1882. Perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, the winery claimed a view of the clouds of thermal steam that billowed from the mountain's summit.
