“Ridge Geyserville • Just in time for Labor Day!”

Ridge's Most Ellusive Zinfandel Blend Arrives Just In Time for Labor Day!

By David Gettenberg

Get your grill ready!

From dry-rubbed ribs to burgers to rotisserie chicken, Ridge Geyserville is the perfect pairing for your upcoming holiday cuisine.  

The Geyserville Vineyards are the oldest vineyards in the Ridge Estate with vines in excess of 130 years old. 

These gnarly vines sit atop an ancient riverbed of gravelly loam and river rock, which retain the day's heat and mitigate the cool nighttime fog.

The extreme climate fluctuation gives Geyserville its exotic nuance.

"A big, cedary bouquet of red and black plums, sandalwood, potpourri, and Asian spices that develops and fills out nicely with time in the glass. This carries to a more medium-bodied Zinfandel that has wonderful purity of fruit, present yet ripe tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish."  James Suckling

Many wineries have tried to replicate Ridge Geyserville with their own Zinfandel blend.  Few if any come close.  Geyserville's hallmark is its blackcurrant, plum, mint, and leather notes - it cannot be replicated.

We don't have much and because of the limited supply will likely not be getting more.

Don't hesitate.

Press & Tasting Notes

“Flawless balance, and a great, great finish.”

Jeb Dunnuck • 95 / 100

"A wine that always delivers, the 2018 Geyserville from Ridge comes all from a single vineyard in the Alexander Valley and checks in as 68% Zinfandel, 20% Carignane, 10% Petite Sirah, and the rest Alicante Bouschet. It has a big, cedary bouquet of red and black plums, sandalwood, potpourri, and Asian spices that develops and fills out nicely with time in the glass. This carries to a more medium-bodied Zinfandel that has wonderful purity of fruit, present yet ripe tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. This structured yet ethereal example of this cuvée ranks with the finest vintages to date. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years."

“Robust yet brooding.”

Wine Spectator • 93 / 100

"Robust yet brooding, with multilayered black plum, licorice and Asian five-spice powder flavors that build richness toward big, briary tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet. Best from 2022 through 2030."
