2019 Ridge Vineyards Geyserville Alexander Valley Zinfandel 750ml

Winery Notes- This is our longest, continuous zinfandel production, beginning with 1966. Each growing season, though different, has given us wine of consistent character and quality. This year’s long, wet winter, and a mild summer, delayed harvest by two weeks. Of the forty-three fermented lots, we chose thirty-two for their superb Geyserville character and blending synergy. Enjoyable now, this excellent wine will develop more complexity over the next fifteen years. Dark garnet red with classic Geyserville nose of ripe black cherry and plum, gravel, wintergreen, and beautiful oak spice. Deep and sensuously layered with polished tannins, river-rock minerality, and a long finish.

JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW:

A beautiful red with lots of blackberries, cloves, stone, spice and purple fruit. It’s full and balanced with a creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Some graphite to the black fruit. More zin this year in the blend. 71% zinfandel, 19% carignan, 7% petite sirah and 3% alicante bouschet. Drink now. 

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 93
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW:

 Deeply structured, yet nimble on its feet. Blackberry, fresh fennel and brown baking spices build richness and layers toward medium-grained tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet.
