WineShopper Notes

A customer-favorite just got better and you’ve got access to a great price! Geyser Peak's 2006 Meritage was one of our best-sellers last year. The 2007 version, just released, is even better. It's already earned a 94-point score from Wine Enthusiast, which shouldn't be a surprise considering the fruit sources and the epic vintage. At the winery this Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend retails for $50; a great price. But today you can pick it up for just $34.99. Free shipping on 3 bottles!

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast
"A great wine for drinking now, this is just beginning to show the evolution of its primary blackberry, blueberry and currant fruits. Hints of anise, dark chocolate, dried herb, spices and cedar add interest. This is a blend of the classic Bordeaux varieties, but the Cabernet Sauvignon component stands front and center with its firm tannins, depth and concentration."

"Deep ruby. Dark berry preserves, licorice and pipe tobacco on the highly perfumed nose. Chewy, palate-staining cassis and bitter cherry flavors are complemented by notes of vanilla and mocha, with a bitter chocolate note on the back half. Shows very good structure but no hardness. Chewy tannins give grip to the finish, which echoes the cherry and tobacco notes."

"An old-school Alexander Valley red, this has begun to show some evolution in its flavors and the openness of its tannins. Scents of peppermint, black olive and fig meld in the middle, turning toward dried fruit and oak notes in the end. Ready for lamb."


Winemaker's Notes

First produced in 1983 Geyser Peak Reserve Alexandre is a Bordeaux-inspired blend of five traditional French grape varietals. Each year our winemakers rely on expert vineyard management, small-lot fermentation, rigorous selection and extensive trial blending to achieve an elegant, cellar-worthy wine.
