    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 58% Zinfandel, 22% Carignane, 18% Petite Syrah and 2% Mataro.

    Winter quickly came and went, leaving the vines short on rain, but in good shape to begin an early growing season. A mild summer moderated the pace of ripening, allowing color and flavor to intensify. Mid-August heat accelerated maturation, and we harvested at ideal ripeness from late August through September. Parcels and sub-parcels fermented on natural yeasts in fifty small tanks. As we blind-tasted over the ensuing months, Geyserville's unique character seemed clearest in thirty-nine of the lots. The exceptional quality of Carignane and Petite Sirah argued for their full inclusion; percentages are comparable to the superb 1991 vintage. By year's end, the blend was aging in air-dried american oak barrels. Sensuous structure and opulent fruit give this fine wine immediate appeal. Firm tannins and acidity assure its longevity over the next ten to twelve years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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. 11,000 cases made.

    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.

    The Wine Advocate

    58% Zinfandel; 22% Carignane; 18% Petite Sirah; 2% Mataro. An intriguing note of cranberry-like fruit sets this offering off on a track of its own while complexing elements of sweet oak, anise, dark chocolate and tar contribute further distinction. Somewhat tighter than most past Geyserville bottlings, it is a solidly structured effort whose ample richness is met by lots of vitality, and, if a bit angular at this point, it promises to blossom with a few years of age and reward those with patience.

    Ridge Geyserville 2007 hits the mark....actually the bullseye in my opinion. I had been looking for a great Zin and when I found Ridge I found what I was looking for. The color is inky dark and the flavor is just a full. From the first taste I was pleasantly surprised with rich berries but what was really enjoyable was the finish which seemed to last over a minute; a gift that keeps on giving. A great value too. I haven't had a poor bottle of any wine from Ridge yet.....
