Geyser Peak Winery
2009 Alexander Valley Ascentia Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon •Ascentia Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Alexander Valley
Today’s Geyser Peak Winery 2009 Alexander Valley Ascentia Cabernet Sauvignon is one serious wine. If you like your Cabs big and brawny, this is the wine for you.
Today’s wine is best decanted, as a little air will really help it come alive. Once it opens, notes of earth, spice, and tobacco will be joined by dark fruit, creating a very well rounded and robust drinking experience. On the finish, the wine slowly trails away, with a touch of dark spice lingering on the very tip of your tongue.
Need a good wine to pair with your next steak dinner? We’ve found your winner!
Richly dark crimson, almost inky, in the glass, with near perfect diffusion from center to rim.
Juicy, incredibly fresh aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry leap from the glass, trailed by hints of sweet brown baking spices, cherry tobacco leaf, sandalwood, and a dusty berry bramble.
Beautiful notes of spice, earth, and bold pipe tobacco take center stage. These are followed by reductions of blackberry, plum, grilled fig, and black cherry. The longer you decant this wine, the more the fruit transitions to freshness.
A lingering finish, highlighted by lengthy flavors of sweet tobacco leaf and dusty terroir.
A charred ribeye steak, served with homemade herbal butter drizzled overtop.
