RIDGE Geyserville 2020

(Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, CA) $50

The 2020 was Ridge’s 55th consecutive vintage of Geyserville, a wine that many Ridge collectors consider the winery’s best Zinfandel blend, if not the best Zinfandel in the country. Its pedigree is uncontested: Old vines some of which are more than 125 years old and 60% of which are 50 years old or older. An historic field blend of mostly Zinfandel, along with Carignane, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, and Mataro (the old name used in California for Mourvèdre). The wine is enormously complex and full of personality. Lots of juiciness and briaryness, with notes of espresso, soy sauce and gameyness. Very rich, impressive, and structured.
