Oh, Cabernet. Ooo la la.

Wine.Woot presents "The More you Vino:" A handy wine glossary.

Wine: A truth serum, dining companion, and occasional headache delivery system.

Cabernet Sauvignon: A French grape known for its full-bodied characteristics, aging potential, and combative temper. Prone to "Sauvignon Rage Syndrome." The best way to prevent this is by talking to your wine - especially in the presence of others, when your wine is more likely to become agitated.

Grape: A berry. Giver of wine. Contributor of the third-best Jolly Rancher flavor.

Arkoudaphobia: Fear of bears.

Mouthfeel: A descriptor for wine's texture on the tongue. Not to be confused with "eyesmell" or "butt-touch."

Palate: Correct. That's how many bottles of this wine you should buy. A pallet.

Aroma: This is the room where you drink wine.

Crepitus: The sound of two bones rubbing against each other. Gross, huh?

Drinking window: Your mouth.

Features

2008 Block Collection Kuimelis 750ml 3-Pack

Dense and foresty on the nose with subtle oak and earthy spice our 2008 Kuimelis Cabernet Sauvignon displays rich mountain tannins, cocoa flavors, and tobacco notes.  Flavors of smoky caramel complement plum and blackberry fruit but the fruit notes take second chair to the dominant savory layers making this a great alternative to more fruit-driven wines and a delightful end of meal wine.  The wine is already showing some intriguing bottle complexity and nuance making it an enticing partner to grilled meats and winter vegetables.  For optimal enjoyment drink now through 2014.

Winery Details

Geyser Peak Winery

Owners:
Accolade Wines
Founded:
1880
Location:
Geyersville, CA
One of California’s oldest and most award-winning wineries, Geyser Peak was founded in 1880, a pioneer of the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, this beautiful setting overlooks Geyserville, the Russian River and the northern end of Alexander Valley.
 
A long heritage of winemaking with a relatively recent resurgence, Geyser Peak Winery's roots in Sonoma County winemaking run deep. Founded by Augustus Quitzow, one of Sonoma County's pioneer winemakers, the original winery was built in Geyserville in 1882. Perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, the winery claimed a view of the clouds of thermal steam that billowed from the mountain's summit.
 
Today, Geyser Peak is one of the most award-winning wineries in Sonoma County.  It consistently garners some of the most prestigious awards in winemaking, including Winery of the Year and Winemaker of the Year honors. Its outstanding team of winemakers and viticulturalists are noted for fruit-forward, food-friendly wines from prime vineyard sources in the Alexander Valley.
