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. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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.

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


Winemaker's Notes:

"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. 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. " -Winery
