2005 Ridge Vineyards Geyserville Zinfandel **

The 2005 Ridge Vineyards Geyserville Zinfandel ** is a restrained and foreboding wine at first blush. For a 2005 Sonoma Zinfandel, this is a very interesting wine with a solid tannic backbone. Deep dark plum color, with some loam and dark berries on the nose, and good mouth watering acidity that is in balance with its dark fruits and tannic structure. The wine evolves with aeration, providing banana, colada, sweet vanilla, blueberry and light, mellow red licorice notes.
