winemaker’s notes: Known for luscious Cabernet Sauvignons, this wine is a classic example of Geyser Peak Winery’s intense, lively style. Forward fruit characters of black cherry and blackberry dominate the aromas, with underlying grace notes of dark chocolate and black pepper. In typical Geyser Peak style, the bright fruit is nicely supported by a restrained oak character. The palate is rich, round and lush, seamlessly pairing the cherry and berry fruit with a hint of spice and vanilla. The fine-grained tannins meld into a persistent, lingering finish. Tasting Notes: “A beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. May be a little lighter in body than some, but trades richness for elegance and impeccable structure. So pretty and polished, with entirely satisfying blackberry, spice and cedar flavors. A great accomplishment.
