Geyserville was the first California zinfandel since the late 1930s to be made as “fine wine.” In her book Vintage Timecharts, Jancis Robinson chose seventy properties worldwide as examples of great vineyards. She included Geyserville.
Saturated ruby in color. Plum and black cherry fruit aromas, mint and gravelly earth. Ripe bramble fruit on entry, balanced acidity and elegant tannins. Long finish.
Gundlach Mountain Cuvee
The outstanding proprietary Red which is 80% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Malbec aged ten months in oak. Dense purple in color with a big beautiful nose of black cherries, cassis, chocolate and espresso roast, this opaque, full-bodied wine has gorgeous purity, a beautifully layered texture and a heady, rich finish. This is a stunner and quite a steal. 90 Pts Robert Parker.
Gratien & Meyer Cremant de Loire Brut Rose
This wine is all about freshness, vinosity and gastronomy. The salmon-pink coloring of this Crémant de Loire Rosé is essentially produced by macerating Cabernet Franc grapes. This single grape variety gives a balanced wine with silky tannins.
100% Cabernet Français. Very fine salmon-pink colour and fine beading. The nose offers subtle aromas of raspberry and strawberry with a hint of redcurrant. Fresh and smooth in the mouth, with an excellent sense of balance and a base of red berries including raspberry and black currant.
