Williams Selyem Papera Vineyard Zinfandel 2014

Planted in 1934, the Williams Selyem Papera Vineyard is an old-vine, dry farmed Zinfandel vineyard, located on the eastern side of the Laguna de Santa Rosa in the Russian River Valley appellation of California. Barrel aged for 14 months the nearly opaque colour of the Papera Zinfandel immediately intrigues the senses. The nose is stunning with brooding elements of loganberry and boysenberry, and an exotic element of India ink. Beneath the fruit are beautifully integrated notes of vanilla, nut spices and hints of anise, fennel, and underbrush. The palate is equally exciting and is driven by the refreshing acidity through the finish. Blackberry cobbler and blood orange peel are interlaced with star anise and cocoa powder flavours. The tannins are robust in this wine but seamlessly integrate within the architecture of this outstanding effort. This is old vine Zinfandel at its best and can be enjoyed now but will benefit from some age.
