While it’s no surprise that the 2016 Ridge Geyserville is extremely good, it is debatable as to what to do with it. It’s a mouthful of powerful fruit, earth and spice, leaning more toward the savory than the fruit at the time of tasting. Dark soil, dried mint, cumin seed and anise complement the intense core of brambly red and blue berry fruitiness here. That said, it is obviously wound up…it’s good but I can tell it is holding back and nothing but time will truly let it blossom. 73% Zinfandel, 17% Carignane, 7% Petite Sirah, 3% Alicante Bouschet.

This wine is no longer available at the winery but seems to be very available at various retail stores. The winesearcher link provided lists the retailers in California who claim to have it available.

Not all wine is created equal.
