Ridge 2017 Geyserville
Ridge have made Geyserville as a single-site Zinfandel (although it also contains Carignan, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet) every year since 1966. Like the timeless Ridge labels, it is a modern classic from one of our favourite-ever U.S. producers. It has lovely rich dark fruit flavours, lots of layers and beautiful balance.
Fresh fruits, subtle aromatics – quite young with a lot to offer. Lightly tactile, palate-cleansing tannins while still very fine grained. Beautifully stimulating but needs a lot more time to relax and reveal itself. Will have a lot to offer with time.
