Served in a vertical tasting with 2004 York Creek and 2005 Geyserville. Clearly the most complex wine of the three, loved the varietal blend. Rich fruit, beautiful garnet color, slight pepper, nice blends of spices. A perfect choice with Braised Short Ribs w/ roasted Root Vegetables served over horseradish mashed potatoes.

I'm going through a case of this (6 bottles left) and I'm afraid it's peaked. This was already a pretty soft wine, not what I normally expect from Ridge.

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 2010 through 2015.

Sturdy, intense and firmly tannic, this rustic style grows on you, with its mix of ripe berry fruit, hints of earth and herb and touches of sage and spice, ending with a touch of leather. Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2010.

A reference point effort from Ridge, the 2002 Geyserville Proprietary Red (84% Zinfandel, 12% Carignan, and 4% Petite Sirah) boasts a rich, sumptuous bouquet of blackberries, kirsch liqueur, damp earth, and licorice. Full-bodied and powerful, with good acidity as well as surprising elegance, this ruby/purple-colored, heady 2002 can be drunk over the next 7-8 years.

The dark ruby/purple-colored 2007 Geyserville Proprietary Red (58% Zinfandel, 22% Carignan, 18% Petite Sirah, and the rest Mourvedre with 14.4% alcohol) offers up attractive aromas of boysenberries, black cherries, earth, pepper, and spice. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, and pure, this classy wine should drink well 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 is the 33rd vintage of this landmark Zinfandel, which, since it's a blend that includes just 74% Zinfandel in it, isn't technically Zinfandel at all. Whatever. It's just plain delicious, old-vine, succulent juice. Jammy, juicy, vibrant and tight, it has a long life ahead.

Ripe and full-bodied, with zesty wild berry, raspberry and blackberry fruit that stays pure and focused if a bit raw and hot on the finish. Drink now through 2008.
