2007 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Sonoma County Red Blend

SKU #1048273 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2007 Zinfandel Geyserville is just beginning to enter its first plateau of maturity. Even so, it remains very youthful. Wild dark cherry, leather, smoke, licorice and lavender add layers of aromatic depth. Bright acids perk up the finish and suggest the 2007 still has a long way to go. This is such a gorgeous and expressive wine. I loved it. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark An intriguing note of cranberry-like fruit sets this offering off on a track of its own while complexing elements of sweet oak, anise, dark chocolate and tar contribute further distinction. Somewhat tighter than most past Geyserville bottlings, it is a solidly structured effort whose ample richness is met by lots of vitality, and, if a bit angular at this point, it promises to blossom with a few years of age and reward those with patience. Inner quote mark (5/2009)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The dark ruby/purple-colored 2007 Geyserville Proprietary Red (58% Zinfandel, 22% Carignan, 18% Petite Sirah, and the rest Mourvedre with 14.4% alcohol) offers up attractive aromas of boysenberries, black cherries, earth, pepper, and spice. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, and pure, this classy wine should drink well for 7-8 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2010)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe, exotic and loaded with personality. Aromas of ripe blackberry, underbrush and licorice lead to concentrated huckleberry and cracked-pepper beef flavors that finish with lively tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, and Mataro. (TF) Inner quote mark (10/2009)

K&L Notes

One of the San Francisco Chronicle's Top 100 Wines of 2009: "The best Geyserville in years, and a reminder of Ridge's quintessential restrained style. Sweet and subtle, with balsam, plump blackberry and a smoky edge, plus impeccable balance and a subtle, gutsy structure." (12/2009) 90 Points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the Napa Valley Tasting in London, this has a rich, opulent bouquet with macerated black cherries, cloves and Xmas cake all with very fine definition, although there is a bit of reduction that takes a few swirls to air off. The palate is full-bodied, ebullient and rounded on the entry with touches of white pepper, then sweet ripe black plum, cassis, briary and tangy ripe strawberry on the voluptuous finish. Does everything you expect from a young precocious Zinfandel just growing out of its diapers and should age nicely."
