Our 2016 Geyserville was recently featured in an article by Wine Lister titled “Wines that Wine Lister Loves – Red Value Picks for Valentine’s Day,” in which Ridge was the only listed wine producer representing California. The article included in its introduction, “To help you avoid compromise on your Valentine’s day drinking, Wine Lister has put together a list of red Value pick MUST BUYs with WL scores above 95.”
The article also included a feature on each region represented on the list. The feature for California included the following:
“Representing the New World, Ridge Vineyards’ Geyserville appears in the line-up with its 2016 vintage. A single-site blend of 73% Zinfandel, 17% Carignan, 7% Petite Syrah, and 3% Alicante Bouschet, it achieves a WL score of 95, and is described by Antonio Galloni as offering ‘black cherry, graphite, lavender, and spice,’ with ‘a purity […] that is absolutely striking,’ Also noted by Jancis Robinson as having ‘snug, focused aromatics with hints of floral lift’ and ‘a palate bursting with flavour…'”
