Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Unyielding fans of elegant and mannerly wines may want to take a pass here, for there is nothing at all subtle or stylish about this big and broad-shouldered Zin. It gets full commendation because it is deep and rich and bursts with bold berry fruitiness with creamy oak in ready supply, and it sports the expected turn to tannin and ripeness that is part and parcel of so many from the Rockpile AVA. In the end, its toughness is tempered with plenty of fruit, and it should grow for another five or six years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

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 7andndash;8 years.

This blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Mataro (Mourvandegrave;dre) 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.

The 2009 Geyserville is a gorgeous wine. It shows expressive inner perfume, sweet black cherries, menthol and minerals. This is an understated, exceptionally elegant red endowed with considerable finesse and fabulous overall balance. A round, sensual finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. In 2009 the blend is 74% Zinfandel, 17% Carignane, 6% Petite Sirah, 2% Alicante Bouschet and 1% Mourvedre. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2029.

Once again an impressive line-up has been released by one of California's leading Zinfandel producers. For starters, there is the 1993 Geyserville (now officially a proprietary wine), which contains large quantities of Zinfandel. The wine is rich and fat, with excellent concentration, a seductive, earthy, black-cherry component, good glycerin, low acidity, and a plump, heady, chewy style that already provides considerable pleasure and joy. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Geyserville was Ridge's first source of red wine grapes, along with Montebello. This is Ridge's most age-worthy Zinfandel, showing pepper, tar, and cedar when young, and rich mocha as it ages.

Winemaker's Notes:

This full-bodied yet elegant Zinfandel is an intense purple colour with a nose<br/>of blueberries, blackberries and spice. In the mouth it offers a harmonious<br/>balance of rich, succulent fruit and good acidity. Enjoyable now, it will<br/>continue to develop over the next eight to ten years.
