Medium- dark ruby with purplish tinges; attractive, spicy, peppery, blackberry and raspberry fruit aroma; full body; big, rich, intense, spicy, peppery, cherry and red berry fruit flavors; well balanced and structured; medium-full to full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Should continue to reward several more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended. 14.8% alcohol; 8,396 cases; a blend of 68% Zinfandel, 16% Carignane and 16% PS.
Bright medium ruby. Black cherry, mocha, espresso and mint on the nose; an initial suggestion of old wood dissipated quickly. Flavors of currant, plum and milk chocolate showed increasing texture and sweetness with aeration...
The ancient vines at Ridge’s Geyserville vineyard grew super-ripe in ‘99, carrying a honeyed buzz into the fermentor and out into the wine. The harvest at Geyserville was two weeks later than normal, and yields were down 40 percent after June rams, both factors leading to the ripeness and concentration of this ‘99. The ripeness comes across as blackberries in honey, as toffee or the scent of halvah, bringing dessert wine to mind. Then the depths of the wine begin to show as it takes on air, growing more savory, the density of the fruit and tannins creating a complex, lasting flavor. Air sublimates the sweetness to a tremendous elegance. A great vintage of Geyserville, best enjoyed two or three years from now.
A ripe, rich, earthy style, with waxy wild berry, black cherry, blackberry, herb and minty notes. Turns a bit rustic on the finish, but the finish rings true with lively flavors. Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah.
