DOUBLE GOLD - 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
"Youthful tannins and ageability always characterize this Cab, which contains a splash of Syrah. Like its predecessors, it very dry, with herb-infused cherry and currant flavors, and new oak plays only a supporting role. It s really an elegant wine and a great value at this price."
"This ripe, full-bodied wine reflects the unique topography and microclimates of Alexander Valley. Each block was fermented separately in small fermentors ranging in size from 3 to 10 tons. After fermentation each lot was sent to barrel and matured separately for 12 months. After blending, the wine was further matured for 6 months prior to bottling." ~Winery notes
Geyser PeakView all from Geyser Peak
One of California's oldest and most renowned wineries, Geyser Peak Winery was founded in 1880 by Augustus Quitzow, a pioneer in Alexander Valley winemaking, Geyser Peak has flourished as an award-winning winery for more than 130 years. Quitzow chose the original winery site in Geyserville for its vantage point of the famed Geysers Geothermal area. The white steam that billowed from the geysers along the mountain slopes provided the winery with a spectacular 'view of the clouds'.
Today, Geyser Peak pays fond tribute to its past roots in Alexander Valley as it sets forth on a new path into the Dry Creek Valley Appellation where the winery has recently relocated. Although the address is new, the commitment to the highest quality artisan winemaking is not. Geyser Peak will continue to "Reach For Peak" for many years to come.
