Disappointing showing of a wine I use to love
Positives: This wine features plum, dark cherry, blackberry, black figs, mocha, turmeric, leather and vanilla.
Negatives: Lots of heat from the 14.5% alcohol
Interesting Point: Vintages 2008 & 2007 that I wrote reviews in 2013 & 2012 respectively, the price was $19.95 and the alcohol was great at 13.5%. Taste was just wonderful, unfortunately it seems Geyser Peak has decided to join the rest of the California clan to make sure their wines, red & white are 14.5% alcohol or higher, and raised their prices by $10. So sad.
Ageability: Drink now or over the next 5-7 of years on its own or pair it with rib-eye steak.
My Opinion: On the Fence
Tasted: August 2, 2019
