Staff Picks

Like art or music or books, wine is a very subjective passion. Although we are based in the Napa Valley, we carry thousands of wines from all over this planet. The wines in this list represent various particular favorites of our staff: aged Alsatians, sublime Sonoma pinot, brawny Northern Rhones, steely Chablis, you name it: someone at BPW has picked this as a particular favorite. See for yourself.





 

Ridge Proprietary Red Geyserville -- 2012

 

AG92-94

Staff Notes:
Stefan Blicker, owner says: This is the tasting room up at Ridge Vineyards in Santa Cruz, at Monte Bello. Hallowed ground....I almost took a job up there back in 1999. I got a private tour from Paul Draper and we sat in the employee break room drinking a 1986 Ridge Petite Sirah as part of my interview. I was utterly blown away. Anyway, it just added to my admiration and unabashed love of what they do at Ridge - and Geyserville has always been my personal favorite. This 2012 "Geezer" is one of the finest in their long, storied history. GET SOME. It is California Zinfandel and "field blend" old-vine history in a glass!!!
