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:
This wine immediately impresses with its deep garnet color and complex nose of dark fruit, black pepper, hints of mocha and slight herbal notes. The palate is mouth-filling and showcases beautiful structure. The restrained tannins and lingering finish beckon one back for more of this enjoyable wine.
Pairs well with beef tenderloin, Ratatouille, leg of lamb, and grilled Portobello mushrooms.
