Wine AdvocateA classic 2014, the downright sexy, hedonistic and ready to go 2014 Geyserville Proprietary Red Wine (60% Zinfandel, 24% Carignan, 12% Petite Sirah and 4% Mourvèdre) is medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced and loaded with notions of blackberries, plums, brambly herbs, licorice and spice. It's relatively soft and already approachable, but it will nevertheless keep through 2024.

VinousThe 2014 Zinfandel Geyserville appears to be especially marked by the Carignane at this stage, especially in the lifted, super-expressive aromatics. Silky tannins balance the gravitas of the 100+ year-old Zinfandel in a focused, nuanced Geyserville built on raciness. Bright red cherry, plum and floral notes punctuate the finish. The blend is 60% Zinfandel, 22% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah, 2% Alicante Bouschet and 2% Mataro (Mourvèdre).

Wine SpectatorThe dark color suggests a brooding style, but this blend shows more finesse than sheer power, offering notes of black cherry, white pepper and tobacco. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Mataro. Drink now through 2027. 9,900 cases made.
