Geyser Peak Walking Tree Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 750mL  JS93 Points-James Suckling

Sonoma County
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. 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.

JS93 Points-Top 100 Value Wines of 2021 ($35 or Less) – JAMES SUCKLING, January 20, 2022
"Ripe blackberries, black cherries and plums. Some licorice and spiced oak, too. Full-bodied with a creamy texture and velvety tannins. Well-balanced with notable minerality and a long, fruity finish. Drink or hold.”
90 Points-One of the Year’s Best Cabernet Sauvignons – WINE & SPIRITS, December 2021
“Easy richness fills this wine with red-cherry scents, notes of tobacco and charcoal. It’s full and ample, ending with a little salty bitterness that would meld with seared duck breast.”


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.
