Geyser Peak Walking Tree Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Overview

Striking medium-dark color leads to aromas of blackberries, ripe strawberries, and dry rose petals, with hints of spice and vanilla, On the palate, there is a silky, creamy mouthfeel that nicely counters the medium/big structure and enjoyable grip of this wine, with nice bright acidity and a long, enjoyable finish. A classic Alexander Valley Cabernet that can compete with any in California. It shows off restrained tannins that allow the wine to be enjoyed now, but are enough to allow this wine to age gracefully for many years.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The 2019 vintage marks our 14th release of the Walking Tree Cabernet Sauvignon. Located in the center of Alexander Valley, the vineyard source for this wine sits atop rolling hillsides, with the valley floor stretched below. The ranch’s soil is composed of an array of marine-influenced and volcanic-derived parent materials, and this site has a myriad of exposures and elevations.

The grapes were hand-picked, followed by hand punch-downs and traditional pump-overs during fermentation. This produced a wine of substantial structure. The wine is then aged for 20 months in French Oak barrels.



Serving Hints
This wine is a perfect complement to grilled or pan- seared beef, wild mushroom risotto, or medium to strong flavored cheeses.
