Press reviews:

The Wine Advocate:
“The 2016 Geyserville Proprietary Red Wine is a real success this year, bursting from the glass with an exuberant bouquet of sweet cherries, blackberries and plums, with subtle hints of the liquorice and spice to come with age, and a subtle framing of sweet new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and layered, with a lovely core of ripe, succulent fruit and beautifully fine-grained structuring tannins. The finish is long and pure. There are 23 different grape varieties co-planted in the Geyserville vineyard, but in 2016, Zinfandel dominates at 73%, followed by 17% Carignan, 7% Petite Syrah and 3% Alicante Bouschet.” 95 points

“The 2016 Zinfandel Geyserville is a powerful, tightly wound wine. Beams of supporting tannin and acidity give the 2016 its distinctly virile, imposing personality. Black cherry, graphite, lavender, and spice are all laced throughout. Deceptively medium in body, the 2016 packs a serious punch. It also needs at least a few years in bottle to settle down, as the tannins are quite imposing, There is a purity to the 2016 that is absolutely striking.” 95 points

Jancis Robinson: “Snug, focused aromatics with hints of floral lift are followed by a palate bursting with flavour. It is still quite focused and wants time to evolve before drinking but this is a lovely wine with fine-grained tannins, great length, and plenty of elegance. I look forward to tasting this again in a few more years. Lovely depth and complexity and a seductive quality even if a bit subdued currently. 14.5% alc. Drink 2020-2037.” 18 Points
