Our Wine of the Week comes from the iconic Ridge Vineyards and its 50th Anniversary of their Geyserville Red Blend. Talk about great timing for the 50th vintage to come around as this is a Zinfandel blend stunner! We have not seen any reviews of this wine as of yet but you would be wise to grab this sooner than later as the accolades are soon to arrive. Once the press hits... it will disappear.
Ridge has made the Geyserville as a single-site Zinfandel in every year since 1966. The grapes are grown in three adjoining vineyards on a defined stretch of gravelly soil approximately one-and-a-quarter miles long and a half-mile wide.
Saturated ruby color. Intense dark berry fruits, gravel earth, black licorice, mint, and exotic spices. Powerful bramble fruit entry, sensuous, well-defined tannins, great depth of flavor, enjoyable lengthy finish.
A blend of 70% Zinfandel, 15% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah, 3% Alicante Bouschet
