2012 Geyserville receives 93 points (Stephen Tanzer)

In the May 2014 issue of Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, our 2012 Geyserville received 93 points from reviewer Josh Raynolds.

"Inky purple.  A heady, exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of dark berry liqueur, potpourri, smoky oak and Indian spices, with a hint of licorice in the background.  Fleshy, palate-staining black raspberry and boysenberry flavors become brighter and spicier with air and pick up a sexy lavender pastille nuance.  Supple tannins add support to an extremely long, sweet finish that extends the berry and floral notes.  As fine an example of this consistently excellent bottling as I've had in years." -Josh Raynolds
