  Cabernet Franc, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Blackberry and cranberry fruit characters and underlying sweet vanillin oak are typical of Cabernet Franc, and are very evident in this wine. The palate is rich and full-flavored, with the typical tannic grip of this variety. While substantial, the tannins are fine and round, giving the wine its classic structure. The wine drinks nicely now, but will benefit from medium-term cellaring.
  Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Vintage
This wine is a classic example of Geyser Peak’s intense, lively style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Uplifted fruit flavors of red and black cherry predominate in the aroma, but the underlying complexity hints at undertones of blackberry, dark chocolate and spice. In typical Geyser Peak style, the bright fruit is nicely supported by restrained oak. The palate is round and lush, beautifully pairing the cherry and berry fruit with a hint of spice and vanilla. The fine tannins meld into a persistent, lingering finish.
  Cabernet Sauvignon, Kuimelis Vineyard, Vintage
The vibrant, deeply crimson, and totally opaque color of this wine speak to its hillside origins, promising intensity and rich fruit.
  Chardonnay, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Fruit-forward, lively and intense. A pale straw color, this wine’s lifted aromas of pear and fig are rounded out by a touch of creamy vanilla. On the palate, these same characters are amplified and intensified, and harmonize with balanced oak. The palate is initially rounded; its fruit flavors give way to a welcome crispness and a cleansing, fruit-forward finish. The wine’s balance makes it a food-friendly complement to a wide variety of dishes, including Virginia Crab Cakes and Sea Bass with a cream-based sauce.
  Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, 2002 Vintage
A bright, iridescent pale straw with attractive green hues, this fruit-driven wine’s
  Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, Vintage
Showing a bright straw color, this fruit-driven wine bursts with lush aromas of ripe apples, peach and hints of butterscotch and vanilla.
  Late Harvest Semillon, Vintage
The vibrancy of this wine’s aromas are a dead giveaway to its rich character. Baked apple and apricot fruit elements jump out of the glass, entice the senses and then blossom gloriously on the palate. Lush and concentrated, this superb dessert wine shows great balance, intensity and style. It finishes with high natural acidity, which elegantly counterpoints the flavors of dried stone fruits that linger and mingle harmoniously at great length.
  Malbec, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Floral aromatics reminiscent of violets mingle with vivid raspberry and cranberry notes to create a compelling bouquet typical of this varietal. Plush blackberry fruit dances on the palate joined by subtle earthy flavors recalling the important supporting role this variety plays in Bordeaux-style blends. The color is a profound, nearly opaque shade of crimson. Malbec is delightful as a multilayered sipping wine or as an accompaniment to fine cheeses.
  Merlot, Alexander Valley, Vintage
This is a very fruit driven style typical of Merlot with lifted red cherry, raspberry and cola characters dominating but complemented by hints of spice, tobacco and cedary oak. The palate is bright and lively with cherry and plum flavors following through to a finish of plush, velvety tannins.
  Merlot, Winmaker's Select Alexander Valley, Vintage
Merlot is a varietal that offers softer fruit and floral elements on the nose, which blend nicely with aromas of ripe cherry and plums. The tannins on this wine are softer that some heavier red varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, leading to a soft, velvety mouthfeel.
  Petit Verdot, Alexander Valley, Vintage
A brilliant hue of violet-tinged garnet enrobes this archetypal Petit Verdot. Upon tasting, a core of densely-focused tannin emerges mid-palate and harmonizes with attractive pomegranate fruit to complement the cedary oak and fine texture. The interplay of fruit, peppery tannin, and elegant French oak keeps this full-bodied wine in proportion and makes it an enjoyable match with grilled beef or spicy marinated ribs.
  Reserve Alexandre Meritage, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Seductively styled, this wine builds up layers of flavor around a focused core of blackcurrant, black cherry and blueberry fruit, from the initial aromas to the plush, focused palate. Hints of oak and spice add complexity, but it’s the generous fruit and rich texture anchor the mid-palate. Turning graceful on the finish, this big, voluptuous wine reveals ripe tannins and a luxurious aftertaste that keeps on going. Overall, balance, elegance and harmony are the hallmarks of this wine.
  Reserve Alexandre Meritage, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Seductively styled, this wine builds up layers of flavor around a focused core of blackcurrant, black cherry and blueberry fruit, from the initial aromas to the plush, focused palate.
  Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Flavors of blueberry and cherry are underlain by a fine seam of acidity, which mingles with tannins and fruit on a persistent finish.
  Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Vintage
This wine’s deep, vibrant, purple-black color is typical of Geyser Peak Winery Cabernet. On the nose, classic Alexander Valley aromas of ripe blackberry fruit and cassis burst from the glass. The lively intensity of this wine’s fruit aromas and flavors, as well as the restrained, cedary oak characters, which support the fruit without dominating it, are a hallmark of the winery’s style. A juicy, round and generous palate harmonizes blackberry and black cherry fruit with toasty oak and a hint of spice. Fine-grained tannins mingle with persistent fruit flavors on the lingering finish.
  Reserve Chardonnay, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Rich, complex aromas of pear, melon and Fuji apples burst out of the glass on this intense, beautifully balanced and wonderfully food-friendly Chardonnay.
  Reserve Merlot, Alexander Valley, Vintage
A big, rich and ripe Merlot that bursts with generous fruit at every stage. Expressive aromas of red cherry, plum and dried herbs lead to a juicy palate marked by plushness and depth. After the rich fruit of the mid-palate, structured, rounded tannins come to the fore and balance the wine. As with all Geyser Peak wines, oak stays in the background as a supporting role to fruit and tannin. Natural acidity balances the wine’s richness and contributes to its agability. Beautifully drinkable now, the wine will reward medium-term cell.
  Reserve Shiraz, Sonoma County, Vintage
A deep, inky ruby color, this wine opens with rich, vibrant aromas of ripe plum and spice. Characteristic notes of white pepper and anise are layered with dark fruits and vanilla oak. These flavors fan out on the palate, which balances depth and intensity with a supple mouthfeel and well-integrated tannins. More rich fruit and spice integrate seamlessly with oak, tannin and fresh leather and carry the wine to a long and supple finish. Lamb makes an ideal partner to Shiraz, and this wine’s spice and balance make it a particularly good pairing with lamb of all sorts, from racks to roasts. Meaty, aged steaks, cut thick and served rare, would also make an excellent accompaniment. The wine is ready to drink now; cellaring over the next five to eight years will yield the complexity that comes from age.
  Sauvignon Blanc, California, Vintage
Classic aromas of grapefruit, citrus, lemon zest and lemongrass jump out of the glass and proudly proclaim the wine’s varietal character. A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine, balanced by bright, crisp acidity. The pleasant finish is persistent with great length of flavor. Perfect as an apéritif, this wine also makes an ideal partner to oysters and nearly any shellfish, as well as salads and light fish and chicken dishes.
  Shiraz, Sonoma County, Vintage
Showing a classic purple color that is both dense and vibrant, this wine reveals its intensity in the glass. The aroma brings black pepper and clove spiciness along with the luscious fruit characters of plum and blackberry. The spiciness continues on the palate, carrying through the black pepper and clove and adding warm notes of nutmeg. The silky tannins evolve, bringing the black fruit and spice flavors together in a long, smooth finish.
  Tawny Port, Cucamonga Valley, NV
Classic tawny brown in color. The nose is extremely lifted with a complex aroma of rich fruit, nutty barrel-aged characters, and beautifully integrated brandy spirit, referred to as “rancio”. The palate is amazingly rich and concentrated, finishing with tremendous length of flavor. The lingering sensation is that of the glow of a warm, open fire. Serve with a plate of dry-aged cheeses, nuts, and dried fruit. {375ml}
  Viognier, Alexander Valley, Vintage
Intrigued by the idea of making a cool-climate Viognier, we were delighted with the results: the cool mornings and long, slow ripening of the grapes have enhanced this variety’s wonderfully aromatic qualities. Classic, bright floral aromas of honeysuckle and gardenia lie atop richer notes of peach and apricot. On the palate, those stone fruit flavors come to the fore, while the finish shows the wine’s cool-climate origins again with a crisp acidity and nice mineral note.
  Zinfandel, Lopez Vineyard, Vintage
This wine represents the inaugural vintage of Zinfandel from the Lopez Ranch. An uncommonly dry spring and summer growing season yielded a big, chewy wine with an excellent core structure to support the supple juicy fruit. Notes of ripe briar-berry, cedar, earth and underbrush mingle on the nose to form what we affectionately call “Cucamonga Character”. The palate is bursting with rich black raspberry and cherry fruit that is accentuated by suggestions of sweet pipe tobacco. Pair this robust Zinfandel with roasted meats and vegetables.
