2011 Geyser Peak Tectonic Red Blend, Alexander Valley

The blend on this complex red wine is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Petit Verdot and what the winery calls “other reds.” It’s the most interesting of Geyser Peak’s 2011s, showing ripe, forward black cherry and red currant fruit, but also notes of dried herbs, minerals, bacon, black pepper, licorice and espresso.
