Geyser Peak Winery
2007 Sonoma County Sparkling Shiraz
California: Sonoma County
All that glitters... is Purple?!
We delight in bringing you a very special wine today. A wine that you can’t purchase anywhere else - unless you happen to be able to stop by the winery itself!
Today’s 2007 Geyser Peak Winery Sparkling Shiraz is made from the winery’s Reserve tier of wine, making it an even more special treat. This wine is bold and delicious and its dark purple mousse and heady aromatics give the delightful wine an even greater appeal. Made in the traditional Méthod Champenoise, this is a wine that was crafted with great care, from great grapes, by a world-class winemaking team.
Enjoy as a fantastic aperitif or with a wide variety of foods. We think that this wine would usher in a lovely beginning to holiday celebrations everywhere. Remember, 2007 was a 96 point vintage (according to that Robert Parker guy) for California reds. This wine, this purple sparkler of joy, is a 2007 red that adds happy elegance to any special occasion.
Ultra dark with deep purple hues through and through. Initially, a thick layer of purple mousse sits atop the wine, disappearing quickly.
Very rich and very dark, with complex aromas of blackberry, blueberry, black cherry compote, dried fall leaves and a very mild sassafras.
Flavors are rich and full, with black cherry and blueberry compote, black raspberry soda, sassafras and dried violets.
Very long and drying with sweet fruit that gives way to a more earthen character.
This unusual and complex wine can be paired with a wide variety of foods. Apéritif. With fruit. Quince and cheese.
