Ridge Proprietary Red 'Geyserville' Sonoma County 2017
Known for their iconic single-vineyard bottlings of Cabernet, Zinfandel, and Chardonnay, Ridge has been dominating the California viticultural game since 1962. Fruit for the winery’s classic Geyserville cuvée comes from Alexander Valley and is farmed organically, aged six months in barrel. Dominated by Zinfandel (73%), the final wine shows flavors of ripe blackberries, raspberries, and oak spice, giving way to a juicy, concentrated finish.
Despite its Croatian origin (and relation to Italy’s Primitivo) there’s no more quintessentially “American” grape than the luscious “Zin” whose gnarly old vines epitomize California’s wine heritage.More wines with this grape

The sun in the American wine solar system, but at the same time a wine 'nation' in its own right, California is like the popular kid in high school that was good at everything and good-looking, too.
