2005 Williams Selyem "Bacigalupi" Russian River Valley Zinfandel
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Similarly styled, but less concentrated than the Feeney is the richly fruity 2005 Zinfandel Bacigalupi Vineyard. Excellent richness and depth are found in this pretty, somewhat Burgundian-styled Zin (although it has more power than most Pinot Noirs). (RP)
Enormously ripe berries characterize this wine; it explodes with wild raspberries, cherries, blackberries and dark chocolate, with a peppery, minty finish. But it’s young and vigorous in rich, dense tannins, suggesting ageability.
Intense and juicy, with wonderful fruit purity and an elegant sense of restraint. Offers fresh boysenberry, spice and anise notes, with fine tannins that build to a tart, cedary finish.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep ruby. Warm and ripe, with dense dark berry aromas and a bright, peppery quality. Broad dark berry and cherry flavors show impressive density and power, with soft tannins adding support on the finish. With air this took on a more elegant red berry quality. Cabral says that the vines in this warm site are about 90 years old. (ST)
