    If you haven’t tried the Lytton Springs and Geyserville bottlings by Ridge Vineyards by now you probably have been living under a rock, or on some deserted island somewhere. For decades, the first Geyserville was made in 1966 and first Lytton in 1972, these have been the best zinfandel based wines in the United States. For either instant consumption, or long term cellaring, few have ever shown as much promise and continuously paid such great dividends. Geyserville has consistently been my favorite bottling from Ridge over time. There is something that just hits my palate right about this wine; I think it is the perfect combination of fruit, spice, oak and texture for a Zinfandel based wine. I first tasted this vintage of Geyserville as a barrel sample at ZAP a couple of years ago and even then I knew it was going to be a superstar. From the very short 2011 vintage we were lucky to obtain a nice allocation of this wine and are able to pass it on to you. Deeply spicy with spice box, sandal wood and wild berry grove aromatics this is powerful stuff from when you pop the cork. A touch wound up currently and bound it its oak this is going to be one of those epic Geyserville bottlings that is easily going to go a decade or more. Peppercorn, boysenberry, allspice, and a touch of coconut from Ridge’s signature American Oak program all create a beautifully integrated yet incredibly youthful wine. My recommendation is to squirrel a few of these away for rainy days or BBQs to come.
