The wine is rich, ruby red in color. On the nose the classic Alexander Valley characters of black cherry and cassis dominate with a complexing element of lovely cigar box oak. Intense Cabernet fruit and spicy oak are the hallmarks of the palate. The wine has a great structure and balance with a backbone of fine-grained tannin and long persistent flavor.
One of California's oldest and most award-winning wineries, Geyser Peak was founded in 1880, a pioneer of the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, this beautiful setting overlooks Geyserville, the Russian River and the northern end of Alexander Valley.
The winery consistently garners some of the most prestigious awards in winemaking, including Winery of the Year and Winemaker of the Year honors. Its outstanding team of winemakers and viticulturalists are noted for fruit-forward, food-friendly wines from prime vineyard sources in the Alexander Valley.
