Damn, WD, stop it! You're on a roll with the enticing deals lately. Geyser Peak is generally good stuff, and I'd expect this one to be among their best obviously. The house style runs toward the middle of the road iirc - not a low acid fruit bomb, but not an austere cab either. And kudos for getting all five Bdx grapes in this one.

In for two. Never had this but the description makes it sounds very appealing. Besides, we had quite the wino night at my house last night.

No Carménère?

Another tempting wine at a price that isn't bad, but not exactly an autobuy.

True...the current five are represented. Does anybody still grow Carmenere in Bdx?

I'll keep an eye out for drinking window on these.
I have really enjoyed the Geyser Peaks I've opened so far. So I think I have to grab 2 offers, try some now maybe save some for later. Will give me a good comparison to the double mag bought in Dec that is resting nicely in my cellar - when I open it in a few years.

Hmmm.... I love a good Bordeaux style Meritage, and I love Alexander Valley juice.

I believe Château Clerc Milon has just a splash.

I do agree that it is very impressive that they have the 5 that they do. I'd love to hear how the wine maker gets the different characteristics to blend together. I'm on the fence with this one today.

Anybody know why Woot wants to charge tax to ship this wine to Washington DC? Killed the deal for me.

Tax is charged on all orders now. Has been for a while. Would you not buy groceries because tax kills the deal?

Yes, small production wine. This is the last of the 2006 vintage. It's drinking great right now. Plus gotta make room for the 2007 vintage (which btw, just took 94 Pts AND Editor's Choice with WE-- toot toot!). Our Reserve Alex (as we lovingly refer to it), is one of our best wines, no matter what the vintage. Always top fruit from our vineyards in AV.

Winemaker (Ondine Chattan) notes: In crafting Reserve Alexandre we look to our vineyard sources that consistently produce grapes with abundant fruit and rich structure. Low-yielding vines from high-elevations, hillsides, and bench land sites produce grape berries with excellent concentration, unparalleled finesse and subtlety. Each of the five varietals brings a unique character to the blend. Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone and framework of the wine, Merlot fleshes out the body and adds to the juicy palate, Malbec brings the floral component and sumptuous spice, Petit Verdot adds a measure of tannin and lovely color, and an aliquot of Cabernet Franc adds brown spice and a sophisticated dried herb note to the final blend. Each component is vinted individually and the varied lots are blended in stages and then matured as a single wine for fourteen months.
