Ridge Vineyards Geyserville 2018
Ridge has made Geyserville as a single-site zinfandel 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. This iconic Zinfandel is actually a field blend composing of Zinfandel (68%), Carignan (20%), Petite Sirah (10%) and Alicante Bouschet (2%). Dark ruby in colour Ridge Geyserville displays intense black cherry fruit aroma, exotic oak spice, cola, mint, and complex gravel earth. Intense bramble fruit entry, sensuous textural tannins, lively acid, and showing great minerality in a long finish.
