95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A first look at the 2017 Geyserville Proprietary Red Wine revealed immense promise. Despite having been in barrel for a mere six months, it's already offering up complex aromas of raspberries, blackberries, and exotic spice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, pure and succulent, with superb concentration, a lovely line of ripe acidity and a chalky, fine-grained finish. The wine attained 14.7% alcohol, and Baugher believes it will be one of the best renditions of Geyserville in a decade.

Range: 93-95

The 2017 Geyserville is a more pretty, streamlined example of this cuvee and offers plenty of spiced blue fruits, violets, cedarwood, and flowery incense. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, with firm focusing tannin, it's a departure from some of the richer, more opulent examples of this cuvee yet is beautifully balanced, has integrated acidity and tannin, and a great finish.

 

Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby color. Aromas of ripe black cherries and plum, sweet oak, mint and gravel earth. Rich bramble fruit entry, round and supple tannins, refreshing acidity, and layered complex fruits in a long finish.

Blend: 68% Zinfandel, 18% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah, 2% Alicante Bouschet
