Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Tightly focused and briary, this blend offers density without weight. Presents plum and blueberry flavors accented by dill and green peppercorn as this builds tension toward medium-grained tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2032.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Toasted oak and wood-smoke aromas lead to equally smoky, spicy flavors of black pepper, blackberry jam and maple in this full-bodied, muscular and firmly tannic wine. Great to pair with barbecue and hatchet throwing. The Zinfandel grapes were supplemented with 16% Carignane, 6% Petite Sirah and 2% Alicante Bouschet.
JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2021 Geyserville checks in as 76% Zinfandel, 16% Carignane, and the rest Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet. It has a pure, expressive bouquet of fresh plums, figs, mulberries, peppery herbs, leather, and vanilla bean, and it takes some air to show at its best, gaining depth and richness with time in the glass. This medium to full-bodied, spicy, elegant red blend has a touch more oak present than I’m accustomed to, but it has a silky, elegant mouthfeel, nicely integrated acidity, and outstanding length. It’s going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age.
OB 96
Owen Bargreen
This marvelous vintage of ‘Geyserville’ blends 76% Zinfandel with 16% Carignane and smaller portions Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and Mataro. This shows a Bordelaise elegance even already after two years in the cellar. Roasted dates, wild blackberry, espresso grounds and fine grained tannins. This is a beauty that is just an infant right now and really needs another year in the bottle before consuming.
VIN 94
Vinous
he 2021 Geyserville hits the palate with a burst of dark red/purplish fruit, sweet spice, lavendar, chocolate, dried herbs and American oak. I would be in no rush to open the 2021, as it is clearly an infant at this stage. The blend is 76% Zinfandel, 16% Carignane, 6% Petite Sirah and 2% Alicante Bouschet. The 2021 is a powerhouse, that much is pretty clear.
WAS 95
Wine & Spirits
When Geyserville hits in a great vintage, it takes me back to what I originally loved about California wine. Or to that sense of optimism on a spring day when I first visited San Francisco in 1984, to pitch this magazine on publishing services. I didn’t know at the time that I would still be publishing it 40 years later, and I didn’t know how much California wine would change. Or how little the style and intention of Geyserville would change. The team at Ridge manages the vineyard’s generations of vines to produce complex wines like this perfectly ripe 2021, with its dark, resinous scents of marijuana, its deep layers of rich fruit and the fruitiness of detailed tannins. The fresh, herbal complexity is pretty epic and the richness doesn’t stop. What I want from California.
WIL 97
Wilfred Wong
Just as I was getting over the greatness of the previous vintage the newest vintage along and an equally exceptional effort. I tasted this wine earlier in the year, and this was my second look at it, and it was even better than I originally thought. Packed and well-built with power and elegance. While many Zins boast of concentration, this one brings style and form with its extraction.
