Geyser Peak Winery Bin 10 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The making of this wine incorporates the use of specialized techniques learned and developed by generations of Geyser Peak Winemakers. These techniques have their origins in some of the world’s most renowned wine producing regions and reflect the best of the modern ‘international winemaking culture.’ After selecting and blending the components, many of which come from some of Alexander Valley’s best hillside and benchland vineyards the resulting wine was matured in small French oak cooperage for 20 months. Whether cellared for posterity or enjoyed tonight Bin wines will intrigue and reward with their impressive structure, abundant fruit, and supple texture.

  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 wine is a deep, inky purple at the center, with bright ruby along the edges. The nose presents aromas of blackberry, plum and cassis overlaid with some earthy notes of leather and tar. The taste is packed with jammy fruit up front, with blueberry, plum and blackberry, that transition nicely to some notes of black pepper and spice along with some earthy notes of limestone midpalate. The finish is just lovely, with still well structured tannins providing the foundation for a long, smooth and exceptionally dry finish.
