Geyser Peak Devil's Inkstand 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Named in honor of our original Geyserville home’s amazing geologic history and the upheaval of the earth’s crust that created our namesake Geyser Peak Mountain, Tectonic is a tribute to the memorable wines that are grown in this region and the soils that were formed over millennia. Well-structured and ripe with exotic spice and bright plum flavors our Tectonic red blend is a complex wine showing both fruit and earth notes. Named in honor of our original Geyserville home’s amazing geologic history and the upheaval of the earth’s crust that created our namesake Geyser Peak Mountain, Tectonic is a tribute to the memorable wines that are grown in this region and the soils that were formed over millennia. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot are fabulous blending partners with the Petit Verdot providing backbone and framework for the wine and the Cabernet Sauvignon rounding out the palate with berry and silky tannin. COLOR: Vibrant ruby. NOSE: Berry, clove and blood orange. PALATE: Waves of raspberry and cherry fruit roll across the palate to meld with espresso, toasty oak, spicy clove and licorice. FOOD PAIRINGS: Roast turkey or pork with pepper and thyme. Try soaking golden raisins in a cup of this wine and then roasting in the pan with the meat.

  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).

Dark black fruit aromas of black currant, blackberry, and cinnamon with some wooded aromas of cedar and forest floor. A strong blend of Cabernet and Petit Verdot, this wine has a fair bit of structure and good fruit flavors, with some savory notes of teriyaki and black olive, clove, cinnamon, black currant and a long finish with chocolate coffee beans and gripping tannins.
