    Winemaker's Notes:

    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 acidity. Long savory finish.

    Blend: 78% Zinfandel, 16% Carignane, 4% Petite Sirah, 1% Alicante Bouschet, 1% Mataro (Mourvedre)

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark red/black cherries, menthol, tar, licorice, smoke and tobacco emerge from the 2011 Zinfandel Geyserville. Deep, muscular and imposing, the 2011 boasts impeccable class, pedigree and balance. This is another drop-dead gorgeous wine from Ridge. The blend is 78% Zinfandel, 16% Carignane, 4% Petite Sirah, 1% Alicante Bouschet and 1% Mataro (Mourvedre).

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    This is a fine wine that shows its terroir. It’s bone dry, moderate in alcohol, and with lovely acidity. The flavors suggest open fields of lavender and thyme, wild strawberries and cherries, and richer, spicier notes of red licorice. A classic Ridge blend of Zinfandel, Carignane and other varieties, it’s one of the most complex and enjoyable wines of its type in California.

    Nice mix of aromas and lovely, complex mix of sweetness and brambly freshness. The palate starts quite light, fills out in the middle with some sweet black fruits and ripe red fruits. The finish is long, herbal and spicy.

    Decanter

    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.
