Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

God Save The Wine

I'll take this over a spot of tea any day.

Refined. Intense. Sort of like a British Royal who also flies helicopters. Not that we're naming names or anything. Wouldn't be cricket, old boy.

But there's something about the aristocracy, something that make us love them. We kicked them out in 1776, but we still love them. And so when we hear about a guy who was born to lead a country and ALSO decided to serve it in combat… well, it's hard not to like a fella like that.

In a similar way, it's hard not to like these Reserve Alexandre Meritage 3-liters. They're lordly, with flavors like black cherry and dried flower aromas. But they're also intense, with hits of tobacco and cedar. The kind of wine that would know how to rate the finest silk, but also be willing to take you on in a wrestling match in the mud behind the barracks.

Kinda like that royal fellow, eh, wot? Do you think he says "eh, wot?" when talking to people? Do you think he's ever visited our site? Golly, we'd just be all a-fluffle to think about him reading this. Nervous as a kitten. Tee hee hee!

First produced in 1983 Geyser Peak Reserve Alexandre is a Bordeaux-inspired blend of five traditional French grape varietals.  Each year our winemakers rely on expert vineyard management, small-lot fermentation, rigorous selection and extensive trial blending to achieve an elegant, cellar-worthy wine.

The twenty-two mile long Alexander Valley AVA flanks the Russian River in northern Sonoma County and is renowned for its diverse topography and volcanic soils.  First planted to wine grapes by namesake pioneer Cyrus Alexander in 1846, the valley is one of the state’s oldest and most distinguished growing regions.

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.


2007 Reserve Alexandre Meritage, Alexander Valley 3-Liter

A multifaceted, noteworthy wine Reserve Alexandre strikes a balance between intensity and refinement.  The core of the palate is reminiscent of cassis and black cherry fruit complimented by aromas of dried flowers. These fruit and floral notes are interwoven with lovely fresh earth aromas of tobacco and cedar.  The graceful structure of this wine yields supple tannins with a silky mouth feel and the interplay of the five varietals results in a noble and luxurious wine.

2009 Reserve Alexandre Meritage, Alexander Valley 3-Liter

In crafting this wine,  we strive to deliver the generous fruit of the Alexander Valley appellation’s best vineyard sites in a framework of tannins capable of long-term aging, but with sufficiently supple tannin structure to allow pleasurable drinkability in its youth.

All facets of production from barrel and yeast strain selection to fermentation temperature, duration of aging, fining and bottling are customized to best suit the style of each component wine. While the percentages of each of the five varietal components vary from year to year, the style of this age-worthy wine is consistent across the vintages and a vertical tasting will reveal the remarkable consistency in style. Blending is conducted in stages and once the final blend is assembled it is matured in French Oak barrels for 12 months before bottling then aged an additional 10 to 12 months before release.

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.

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.
