About the Winery:
Founded in 1880 as California’s 29th bonded winery, Geyser Peak Winery has more than 140 years of winemaking history in Sonoma County. Originally located perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, its namesake, it commanded a view of the thermal steam clouds that billowed from the mountain summit. Geothermal activity in the region afforded diverse soil profiles, optimal for growing wine grapes. This later inspired the winery’s motto of “Reach for the Peak”, a mission of seeking out the utmost quality.
Crafted in small lots and fermented separately, then blended together to achieve full expression, balance and character, Geyser Peak wines are sourced from prime vineyards that capture the essence of Sonoma and the appellation’s unique terroir, offering sophistication and ease, elevation and approachability, and taking us from casual days to connoisseur nights.
About this Wine:
The Block Collection is designed to feature specific vineyards from Sonoma's Alexander Valley. Jam packed with fruit, spice, and a touch of minerality, this Cab is everything you look for in the varietal. Graceful structure, medium tannins, deep color and cherry fruit are characteristic of this site.
Ratings & Reviews92 Points - Wine Enthusiast (2003):
"You won't find tannins like this in many Napa Cabs, especially the cults. In that sense, it's a throwback. But how refreshing to find something with structure that won't overwhelm food. It's a beautiful wine, ageworthy to judge from the dryness and tannins and huge core of fruit." (2/1/2007)
