Rich and warm, round wine, with a gentle earthiness. Striking blackberry flavors on the finish.
Intensely fruity, with blackberries and raspberries dominating. Baked blueberry pie in the mouth. This wine was a little rich and sweet for me.
A nice smooth red, with hints of of coffee, dried fruit (currants, figs) and chocolate.
The Ridge Geyserville Zin is about as close to a sure thing as you can find. The 2007 is again excellent, though it came across as an infant in this tasting (April 2010). Less Zin than usual in the blend, but it has the usual Geyserville combination of power and balance. Lots of briary, earthy, chewy dark berry fruit, tightly structured, but full and long. Will be even better in a couple of years when it cracks open.

External Reviews for Ridge Geyserville Proprietary
This hearty Zinfandel blend from Sonoma County is dense and earthy, delivering layers of complex cherry, wild berry, raspberry, cedar and spice, turning supple and polished, culminating in a long aftertaste. Drink now through 2005.
Ripe, exotic and loaded with personality. Aromas of ripe blackberry, underbrush and licorice lead to concentrated huckleberry and cracked-pepper beef flavors that finish with lively tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Mataro. Best from 20... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2007 Ridge Geyserville Proprietary Red Wine 1500ml
The 2001 Geyserville Proprietary Red, a blend of 74% Zinfandel, 18% Carignan, and 8% Petite Sirah, is a beautiful effort. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a tight but promising nose of raspberry and briery fruit intermingled with notions of oak, pepper, and resin. This dense, full-bodied, textured, voluptuous offering is both exuberant and dramatic on the palate. Although the aromatics have not caught up with the flavors, this appears to be an exceptional example of this renowned cuvée. Its 14.4% alcohol is well-disguised beneath some serious concentration. It will drink well for 5-6 years.
The 2008 Geyserville Proprietary Red (72% Zinfandel, 20% Carignan, and the rest Petite Sirah, Mataro, and Mourvedre; 14.8% alcohol) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with lots of glycerin, blue and black fruits, pepper, and incense. This rich, fleshy 2008 may turn out to be more juicy and succulent than the 2007. It should last for 7-8 years.
This blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Mataro (Mourvèdre) is a good, rather rustic red wine. It has strong, jammy flavors of cherries, red currants, plumped raisins, peppery spices and sandalwood, and turns a little sweet on the finish.
This supple and harmonious Zinfandel blend opens with pretty, toasty oak, leading to spicy wild berry, cherry jam, plum and raspberry flavors that remain sharply focused on the long, lively finish. Best from 1999 through 2004. Contains 75 percent Zinfandel, 17 percent Carignane, 6 percent Petite Sirah and 2 percent Mataro.
Sensuous structure and opulent fruit give this fine wine immediate appeal. Firm tannins and acidity assure its longevity over the next ten to twelve years.
