Geometry wines are inspired by the simple elegance of natural proportions.
Our approach to wine-making has remained constant since our first vintage. We inspect every grape after it has been removed from the stem. We discard every one that doesn’t meet our standards; typically sacrificing six to eight percent of our fruit during this process. From that stage on, every wine is crafted to maximize balance and textures. Each of our vineyards imparts their fruit with such pure flavors that we strive to bring all of the components into harmony.
All of our wines are aged in new French and Hungarian oak barrels, including Taransaud, Vicard and Damay. We evaluate each barrel of wine biweekly, allowing the wines to dictate to us how they are treated in terms of racking, barrel stirring, and bottling.
While we are not open to the public, we enjoy hosting private tastings for our list customers. Please contact us if you’d like to arrange a tasting.
GEOMETRY SYRAH, MOAVENI VINEYARD
Our single vineyard Syrah is an Alban clone from the Bennett Valley, renowned for its distinctive cool climate. Blended in a classic Rhône style, the Moaveni Syrah offers up the full, savory richness we’ve come to expect from Moaveni Vineyard. It’s a full-bodied wine redolent with oak spice and hints of cedar, but balanced with shades of blackberry and bright stone fruits. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate gave the 2015 a 91+ rating, and said “deep garnet-purple in color and gives intense black cherry, black plums and blackberry preserves scents with suggestions of licorice, tar, black pepper and charcuterie. Full-bodied and packed with black fruits and peppery layers, the palate features a firm frame of rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory.” The fruit is hand-picked and hand-sorted, and the wine is aged for over 18 months in French and Hungarian oak.
GEOMETRY SYRAH, STEINER VINEYARD
Located very close to the Moaveni Vineyard, our Steiner Syrah comprises 94% Steiner Syrah, 1% Steiner Viognier (Bennett Valley), plus 5% Tejada Grenache (Upper Lake County). The low yields and smaller berries have created a very approachable wine with firm, integrated tannins. The Steiner is very dark ruby-purple, bordering on opaque. Absolutely stunning aromas of blackberry, savory herbs, and a hint of charcoal. There is a slight but pleasing note of violets as well. Plush on entry, berries and spice envelop the palate. The wine is both silky and elegant as well as precise and focused, with flavors of fresh ground pepper and graphite. Although there is plenty of upfront appeal, the wine’s structure and tannin point to a long life of development and drinkability.
GEOMETRY Rosé, MOAVENI VINEYARDS
Our Rosé, comprised of Syrah with a dash of Grenache, is a relatively dark and full bodied wine which remains true to our core values of balance and bringing several elements into harmony. Bright and spicy on the nose, it offers aromas of apricot, cherry, and hints of anise. It is clean and vibrant on the palate, its soft tannins creating a delicious, lingering finish with a touch of minerality. Our rosé delivers just the right balance of fruitiness and acidity to enjoy alongside flavorful salads, pasta and seafood. Best served slightly chilled. Quantity is extremely limited.
