A reference point effort from Ridge, the 2002 Geyserville Proprietary Red (84% Zinfandel, 12% Carignan, and 4% Petite Sirah) boasts a rich, sumptuous bouquet of blackberries, kirsch liqueur, damp earth, and licorice. Full-bodied and powerful, with good acidity as well as surprising elegance, this ruby/purple-colored, heady 2002 can be drunk over the next 7-8 years.
84% Zinfandel; 12% Carignane; 4% Petite Sirah. While relying on ripeness to no small degree, this attention-getting wine has plenty of fruit at its heart, and its generous measure of berries is enriched with elements of chocolate, cassis and a hint of loamy earth. It is moderately full-bodied with a thick, fleshy feel, yet for all of its considerable depth and intensity, it is neither heavy nor hot. Any near-term drinking will require accompanying foods of real substance, but, as we have so clearly seen in this month's centerfold feature, Geyservilles age with the best and this one will grow for a decade or more.
A big, bold wine, based on an old-fashioned field blend. Predominantly Zinfandel, with smaller amounts of Carignane and Petite Sirah, it shows berry flavors that are ripe to the point of raisins, and the finish turns a little Porty sweet, but not too much.
