How does an iconic winery follow up on a legendary anniversary bottling of one of its signature wines from a terrific vintage? It is a tough act to follow, for sure, but if the said winery has pristine terroir, healthy vines, a skilled winemaking team and a little luck from the weather gods, lightning can strike twice, those big shoes can be filled, and magic can be made in the bottle! This scenario played out at Ridge Vineyards and the result happens to be today's Three-Pack Special, the 2016 Ridge Vineyards Geyserville Alexander Valley!

From Ridge Vineyards, one of the "Grand Cru" properties of California, Geyserville is home to the winery's oldest vines. Ridge has bottled the Geyserville Proprietary Red every year since 1966. The grapes are sourced from three adjoining vineyards on a continuous strip of gravelly soil on the western edge of Alexander Valley. The "Old Patch" section of the vineyard contains vines that are more than 130 years of age. With a pedigree like this, it is no wonder that Geyserville represents one of the best values in blue-chip California red wine. (from winery notes)

The 2016 Geyserville is a blend of 73% Zinfandel, 17% Carignane, 7% Petite Sirah and 3% Alicante Boushcet grapes that were sustainably farmed, hand-harvested and fermented with native yeast. The wine was aged in a combination of new and seasoned American oak barrels for 12 months. Its deep color and ripe red and black fruit aromas are harbingers of the plethora of flavors that await on the palate: plum, brambly black cherry, and raspberry, with subtle hints of mint and gravelly earth weaving their way around all that luscious fruit. Firm but yielding tannins present themselves on the mid-palate and last through the long finish. Check out the press!

91-94 points, Vinous
"The 2016 Zinfandel Geyserville is bright, lifted and decidedly medium in body. The flavors are distinctly red-toned and the acids are bright. Sweet red cherry, red plum, mint and floral notes add nuance, but it is the wine's overall energy that really makes an impression. Even at this early stage, the 2016 Geyserville is a knock-out." (August 2017)
