2009 Williams Selyem "Forchini Vineyard-South Knoll" Russian River Zinfandel

SKU #1157711 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Zinfandel South Knoll Forchini Vineyard is higher toned and more aromatic then the North Flats bottling from Forchini. Crushed flowers, rose petals, spices, sweet herbs and red berries round out the finish, but it is the energy and cut that elevate the South Knoll. The truth, though, is that a hypothetical 50/50 blend of both Forchini Zinfandels is better than the two wines when tasted apart. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining purple. Wild, gamey and exotic on the nose, offering ripe boysenberry, cassis and fruitcake scents along with an exotic jolt of cocoa powder and anise. Round, expansive black and blue fruit flavors gain sweetness with air, slowly revealing a sweet black raspberry preserve quality. Very persistent, deeply flavored zinfandel with impressive volume and finishing intensity. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a terrific Zinfandel, offering berry, cherry, mocha, spice and cedar flavors that come wrapped in briary tannins. It's technically dry, but with a satisfying honeyed note. Inner quote mark (9/2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich, ripe and jammy, with spicy cherry pie aromas and layered flavors of boysenberry, underbrush and cracked pepper. The tannins are ripe but a bit rustic. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2019. 224 cases made. (TF) Inner quote mark (2/2013)
