Ce vin présente des arômes de mures sauvages, de menthe, de terre graveleuse et de subtiles notes fleuries. Il offre au palais des saveurs de thé noir, de cerise douce et une minéralité complexe.

Ce Geyserville est un somptueux vin plein de sensualité, avec des couches de tanins crayeux et une vive acidité. Des notes florales réapparaissent en finale lui donnant ainsi de la longueur et beaucoup de saveurs.

Elevé en fût de chêne américain (24% nouveau, 76% vieux) pendant 12 mois.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2017)
The 2017 Geyserville is a blend of 68% Zinfandel, 18% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah and 2% Alicante Bouschet, aged 14 months in American oak, 16% new. Medium ruby, it opens with lilac, chocolate box and stone fruit hints with warm blackcurrants, red and black cherries, cranberries, cedar, tobacco leaf and dusty earth. Medium to full-bodied, it opens slowly in the mouth to pure fruits supported by fine, chalky tannins and integrated freshness on the very long finish. This is wound tight but has loads of potential and will require at least another few years in bottle.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2017)
A soft and delicious red with aromas and flavors of blueberries, light chocolate and walnuts. Medium to full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. 68% zinfandel, 18% carignan, 12% petite sirah and 2% alicante bouschet. Drink now.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2017)
The 2017 Zinfandel Geyserville exudes energy, but it is also very tight and closed in on itself. Time in the glass helps the wine open up, but only to a limited extent. Pretty scents of leather, savory herbs, spice and earthiness hint at what is to come. Readers should plan on being patient, but Ridge lovers know that. In most years, Geyserville starts hitting its stride around age ten. (AG) (10/2019)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2017)
Tightly focused yet expressive, with floral cherry, smoky dill and black pepper flavors that linger toward briary tannins. (TF) (6/2019)

Connoisseurs' Guide (CG) : 91 Points (2017)
68% Zinfandel; 18% Carignane; 12% Petite Sirah; 2% Alicante Bouschet. Starting off with aromas of a controlled and mannerly cast, but quickly opening up with air to show great depth and a promise of more to come, this wine is a bit brooding yet deeply endowed. Its early blackberry scents gain notes of dark soils, bark and sweet oak over time in the glass, and its full-bodied yet well-balanced construction on the palate could lead some to drink it up now. We would, however, counsel a more patient approach and suggest letting it rest in bottle for some three to six years at a minimum. Time is clearly its ally.

Jeb Dunnuck (JD) : 91 Points (2017)
The 2017 Geyserville is a more pretty, streamlined example of this cuvee and offers plenty of spiced blue fruits, violets, cedarwood, and flowery incense. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, with firm focusing tannin, it's a departure from some of the richer, more opulent examples of this cuvee yet is beautifully balanced, has integrated acidity and tannin, and a great finish.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17.5 Points (2017)
68% Zinfandel, 18% Carignan, 12% Petite Sirah, 2% Alicante Bouschet. Fresh fruits, subtle aromatics – quite young with a lot to offer. Lightly tactile, palate-cleansing tannins while still very fine grained. Beautifully stimulating but needs a lot more time to relax and reveal itself. Will have a lot to offer with time. (ECB) 17.5/20 points (5/2019)

Decanter (DCT) : 91 Points (2015)
Full and plummy, this is a rich wine with bramble and pastry details, a cherry twist and some slightly raw tannins which may take a few years to break out. (10/2017)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2011)
This is a fine wine that shows its terroir. It’s bone dry, moderate in alcohol, and with lovely acidity. The flavors suggest open fields of lavender and thyme, wild strawberries and cherries, and richer, spicier notes of red licorice. A classic Ridge blend of Zinfandel, Carignane and other varieties, it’s one of the most complex and enjoyable wines of its type in California.

Si nous devions choisir un vin pour illustrer la notion d’équilibre, ce serait certainement ce "Louro do Bolo". Il combine la fraîcheur des vins de Galice avec la richesse des élevages sur lies et le vieillissement en chêne d'une façon très élégante et subtile. Riche mais précis, c'est un vrai régal pour les palais les plus exigeants.
