Geyser Peak Winery
2009 J&J Fay Ranch Alexander Valley Merlot
California: Sonoma County: Alexander Valley
We absolutely fell in love with today’s Geyser Peak Winery 2009 J&J Fay Ranch Alexander Valley Merlot, and after a sip or two, we’re 100% certain you will, too.
Today’s wine highlights why Merlot is one of our top food pairing wine choices. The juicy dark fruit flavors and touch of structure will complement a wide variety of meals, with the touches of berry bramble and coffee bean ensuring that this wine is plenty interesting enough all on its own. And because today’s wine is crafted by our friends at Geyser Peak, it features their hallmark soft entry and silken mouthfeel.
There aren’t many cases left of today’s limited release Merlot, so please act fast. Cheers!
An inky, foreboding, almost black crimson through and through.
A lush and very serious aromatic profile on this wine, with rich fruit of black raspberry, black currant, and blueberry joining dark lightly roasted coffee bean, summer berry bramble, clove, and dried rosemary.
A plush flavor profile, leading with bold hints of blackberry, raspberry, and dried blueberry. These are quickly trailed by earthy briar patch, sweet tobacco leaf, freshly brewed dark coffee, sage, black peppercorn, and clove.
A lovely wine, soft upon entry with great structure and velvety tannins.
A slow roasted pork tenderloin, served with a red wine-sour cherry balsamic reduction drizzled overtop.
