Ridge 'Geyserville' Zinfandel Blend 2018 (Sonoma County, USA) "...juicy blackberry, wood spice, mint..."
68% Zinfandel, 20% Carignan, 10% Petite Syrah, 2% Alicante Bouchet
“The 2018 Geyserville is a blend of 68% Zinfandel, 20% Carignane, 10% Petite Sirah and 2% Alicante Bouschet. It’s incredibly alluring, offering up layers of warm, tricolored fruits and loads of spicy accents on the nose, with a dusty, mineral-tinged undercurrent that adds to its appeal. In the mouth, it’s generously fruited and fantastically juicy, its silt-like tannins providing just enough support, and it finishes very long and layered.” - 96 Points, Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate
“A wine that always delivers, the 2018 Geyserville checks in as 68% Zinfandel, 20% Carignane, 10% Petite Sirah, and the rest Alicante Bouschet. It has a big, cedary bouquet of red and black plums, sandalwood, potpourri, and Asian spices that develops and fills out nicely with time in the glass. This carries to a more medium-bodied Zinfandel that has wonderful purity of fruit, present yet ripe tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. This structured yet ethereal example of this cuvée ranks with the finest vintages to date. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years.” – 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck
