2019 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Alexander Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1530490 95 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark In the very first Issue of Connoisseurs’ Guide, back in November, 1974, Ridge Geyserville was among the most highly praised wines. And, now four decades and five years later, the very same wine sits at the top of the ratings table. But there is an interesting difference. This wine is among the most mannerly Geyservilles ever. Yes, it is its usually deep and complex self with ripe berries both black and blue profoundly expressed all joined with the richness and flavor length that has been prominent in the very best vintages. And, yes, that expected stratum of solid tannins shows up in the finish and promises a long and rewarding aging curve. This is Geyserville, and it still makes our palates sing and puts a smile on our faces. Buy it. Inner quote mark (7/2021)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A beautiful red with lots of blackberries, cloves, stone, spice and purple fruit. It’s full and balanced with a creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Some graphite to the black fruit. More zin this year in the blend. Inner quote mark (4/2021)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The oldest vines at Ridge’s Geyserville Vineyard were planted 130 years ago in a gravel wash off the Russian River. Today, the wine layers the fruit of successive generations of vines while combining Zinfandel (71%) and Carignane (19%) with Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet. All those elements come together in a complex tapestry of flavor, smoky in its concentration, lasting on scents of herbs, flowers and berries. As elegant as the wine may be, it is not shy in its rich power. Inner quote mark (6/2021)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Deep and rich in flavor, this full-bodied wine will continue improving with age. It shows generous, late-picked blackberry flavors along with accents of vanilla, milk chocolate and black pepper, while mild tannins give it some nice heft in the texture. *Cellar Selection* (JG) Inner quote mark (10/2021)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Deeply structured, yet nimble on its feet. Blackberry, fresh fennel and brown baking spices build richness and layers toward medium-grained tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark This was a cooler vintage yet this wine reveals plenty of ripeness in its black and blue fruits as well as violets, cigar, and toasted spice-like aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and expansive on the palate, it has some obvious minerality, building tannins, and a great finish. Inner quote mark (7/2021)

This legendary wine, a standard bearer in their portfolio, is sourced from three contiguous vineyards, which were once a river bottom. The river stone and gravel provide an ideal home for a variety of old vines. The 2019 Geyserville is a blend of 71% Zinfandel, 19% Carignane, 7% Petite Sirah, 3% Alicante Bouschet. It too is aged in mostly used American oak for 12 months. This is prototypical Ridge Zin filled with dark brooding berries, a hint of vanilla, an edge of minerality, and a long memorable finish. This wine defines the category.
