Mission Briefing


Quite a mouthful!

We are very fortunate to have gotten our hands on today’s Geyser Peak Winery 2009 Block Collection Alexander Valley Walking Tree Vineyard Petite Sirah. Like its name, the wine itself is quite a mouthful!

Bold and rich on the palate and exuding layer after layer of dark fruit aromatics, this is a delicious wine with plenty of gusto. For all of its boldness, though, this wine really has great balance. Earthen components underpin the lively dark fruit and sweet spice components.

Enjoy this wine with something as rich and complex. A hearty stew or savory grilled meats would be an excellent choice.

This wine is drinking beautifully now, and it will only continue to improve for the next few years. Be sure to decant - or swirl the wine with vigor - and be rewarded with a more balanced and delicious drinking experience.

Tasting Profile


Midnight garnet and nearly perfectly opaque at its heart, with a beautiful ring of ruby around the edge of the glass.


Well balanced, with equal footing for the fruit, earth, and spice notes. Concentrated dark fruit notes lay against sweet tobacco, sandalwood, smoked meat, allspice, tarragon, rosemary, and a touch of clove and black pepper.


Deep, lush fruit flavors of black cherry, blackberry, and plum are balanced against savory black olive, fresh forest floor, hints of wood smoke, rosemary, dark baking spices, sage, and an undertone of charcoal minerality.


Well rounded, with soft balanced tannins, this full bodied wine has a wonderful spicy black peppercorn note at the very end of the finish.


A hearty Irish stew of beef and root vegetables, served alongside freshly baked Irish Soda Bread.
