SELL OUT ALERT: We purchased every last bottle of today’s wine, but it will go very quickly. Please be sure to place your order soon.
It has been more than a year since Geyser Peak graced our pages, so we thought that we’d bring them back with a bang. Their 2006 Reserve Alexandre Meritage is their highly-prized flagship wine and we are very proud to bring it to you, today.
A very elegant wine, today’s Geyser Peak Meritage shows wonderful balance and a real potential for fine-food pairings. This is a very flexible wine, to be sure, but we recommend serving it with your finer and more elegant meals. Bright fruit and a soft mouthfeel make for a great between-bites palate cleanser.
If you are a fan of Bordeaux-style blends, you won’t be disappointed by today’s wonderful selection. Unless, that is, we run out before you can make your purchase!
Deep garnet with a slightly opaque heart. At the edges, the wine shows off clear ruby hues.
Lush and balanced with dark fruit of plum, cassis, dried black cherry and wild strawberry that melds with dark tobacco leaf, dusty bramble, leather, sweet spice and a hint braised fig.
Bright and sweet in even proportion, with fruits from the nose echoed on the palate. Earth, spice, bramble, leather and cherry cordial follow on.
Elegant and softly drying, with fruit and soft spice lingering at the mid-palate the longest.
Enjoy this elegant wine with a delicate cut of meat, like a lovely filet mignon, cooked to (rare) perfection.
