Winemaker Notes
Intense purple/blue. Ripe black cherry, blueberry, plum sauce. Gravel/mineral, mint/menthol, oak spice. Full body. Dark bramble fruit, firm acid, plush tannins. Great depth and complexity.
Critical Acclaim
CG94Connoisseurs' Guide
72% Zinfandel; 20% Carignane; 6% Petite Syrah; 2% Mataro. It has never been easy to regard Ridge's Geyserville botlings simply as Zin, for, as once again is so evident here, they show a measure of depth and a degree of complexity rarely found in wines of the same name. Both rich and refined with sweeping impressions of red and black berries, sweet oak, briar, and just a touch of spiced candy, the wine exhibits remarkable energy and is never other than perfectly balanced. Its polish is sure to tempt many into drinking it now, but it has the pedigree and pieces in place to grow for years
RP92Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Geyserville Proprietary Red (72% Zinfandel, 20% Carignan, and the rest Petite Sirah, Mataro, and Mourvedre; 14.8% alcohol) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with lots of glycerin, blue and black fruits, pepper, and incense. This rich, fleshy 2008 may turn out to be more juicy and succulent than the 2007.
JD92Jeb Dunnuck
The 2008 Ridge Geyserville, a blend of 72% Zinfandel, 20% Carignan, and the remainder Petite Syrah, and Mourvedre, exhibits great aromatics with complex notes of leather, a touch of game, loads of spice, and beautifully ripe blackberry styled fruits. There is solid ripeness here, but the wine stays fresh and very focused. Medium to full bodied on the palate, with a solid texture, good acidity, and plenty of length on the finish...
