Saturated ruby. Plum and blackberry fruits, dried fig, peppermint, exotic oak spice, gravel earth. Intense bramble fruit entry; dense/syrupy body; rich, chalky tannins, long finish.

Vintage Notes

After seven years, growing conditions at Geyserville were, once again, ideal for producing an essence. The grapes must reach extreme ripeness for fermentation to stop at the point of natural stability that allows the wine to hold its residual sugar. Made from the exact vineyard rows that produced the 2007, this seductive essence can be enjoyed over the next ten to twenty years.
