PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
From Ridge Vineyards, one of the "Grand Cru" properties of California, Geyserville is home to the winery's oldest vines. Ridge has bottled the Geyserville Proprietary Red every year since 1966. The grapes are sourced from three adjoining vineyards on a continuous strip of gravelly soil on the western edge of Alexander Valley. The "Old Patch" section of the vineyard contains vines that are more than 130 years of age. With a pedigree like this, it is no wonder that Geyserville represents one of the best values in blue-chip California red wine. (from winery notes)

PRODUCT REVIEWS:
95 points, The Wine Advocate
“The 2016 Geyserville Proprietary Red Wine is a real success this year, bursting from the glass with an exuberant bouquet of sweet cherries, blackberries, and plums, with subtle hints of the licorice and spice to come with age, and a subtle framing of sweet new oak. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, supple and layered, with a lovely core of ripe, succulent fruit and beautifully fine-grained structuring tannins. The finish is long and pure. There are 23 different grape varieties co-planted in the Geyserville vineyard, but in 2016, Zinfandel dominates at 73%, followed by 17% Carignane, 7% Petite Sirah and 3% Alicante Bouchet..” (May 2018)

95 points, JebDunnuck.com
“The 2016 Geyserville is the usual Zinfandel-dominated blend and includes 17% Carignan, 7% Petite Sirah, and 3% Alicante Bouschet. It offers a gorgeous bouquet of ripe red and black cherries, caramelized plums, toasted spices, and exotic flowers. This gives way to a seamless, medium to full-bodied, elegant Geyserville that has plenty of intensity, sweet tannin, and perfect balance. This beauty just glides over the palate and is one of the more approachable vintages of this cuvée I can remember. Nevertheless, it will keep for at least a decade. It’s a great wine.” (June 2018)
