Perfumed and deep on the nose, with aromas of crushed berries, balsamic, and a bit of gamy lamb topped with faint sage and lemon verbena notes. On entry, this is plump, with some density but not a ton of weight, delivering a a little blueberry fruit early on, followed by some carob, then mostly raspberry and hints of wild cherry fruit. This finished with fine tension and detail and remains bright and vibrant. 93 points

My 4/8, the group’s 4/8 Sweet oak greets the nose with hint of coconut and suntan lotion over blueberry fruit that shows some subtle spicy character. Bright and focused in the mouth, there’s a nice faceted feel here though not much complexity beyond an attractive blend of tart blueberry pie filling, vanilla and a hint of latex. There’s a nice touch of almost stemmy spice on the finish, which turns a touch sour. A little straight forward and simple. 87pts

The 2011 Geyserville is a ruby color. Scented with bramble fruit, mint, gravelly earth, sweet oak, as well as black tea, and sweet cherry fruit. Medium chalky tannins, sensuous, layered, with complex minerals, old vine/field-blend fruits and lively acidit

The 2011 Geyserville impresses for its silkiness and texture. Sweet dark berries, flowers and mint are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. The 2011 is a decidedly mid-weight, feminine style of Geyserville. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and vibrancy. The 2011 should drink well upon release and also age. To make the 2011, Ridge was especially selective and fewer parcels made it into the blend than normal, especially with the Petite Sirah. The blend is 80% Zinfandel, 16% Carignane, 3% Petite Sirah and 1% Alicante Bouschet. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2031.

Youthful violet color. Powerful, musky aromas of dried cherry, cassis, violet and vanilla, with a floral topnote. Energetic and precise on the palate, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors that become sweeter with air. A mocha quality comes up on the smooth, gently tannic finish, which lingers with very good tenacity. This fruit was harvested between September 21 and October 3, so all was in literally a day before the heavy rains fell.

Ridge has made the Geyserville as a single-site zinfandel in every year since 1966. The grapes are grown in three adjoining vineyards on a defined stretch of gravelly soil approximately one-and-a-quarter miles long and a half-mile wide.

"Aromas of scented bramble fruit, mint, gravelly earth, and sweet oak. Flavors of black tea, sweet cherry fruit and complex minerality. Sensuous and layered with medium chalky tannins and lively acidity. Finishes long and savory. Ridge has made the Geyserville as a single-site zinfandel in every year since 1966.
