2007 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Sonoma County Zinfandel

SKU #1048273 93 points Vinous

 The 2007 Zinfandel Geyserville shows just how compelling the wines from this site can be with a little time in bottle. Just starting to show the first signs of aromatic complexity, otherwise the 2007 shows very few signs of its age. The raciness of the fruit suggests a riper year, yet the wine is quite youthful. Ripe, creamy and generous, yet medium-bodied and refined on the palate, the 2007 is inviting from the very first taste. It should drink well for the next decade or so. There is no way I would have guessed this wine's age had I tasted it blind. The sweet red cherry and pomegranate flavors are striking. (AG)  (7/2016)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

 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.  (5/2009)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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)  (2/2010)

91 points Wine Spectator

 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)  (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. Drink 2012-2020+ Tasted May 2009."
