2012 Williams Selyem "Papera Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1157840 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Williams Selyem’s track record with this bottling is excellent. While this 2012 has notes of raisins, they’re more of a seasoning than the main ingredient. It’s a robust, lusty wine, filled with blackberries, dark chocolate, anise and pepper, yet balanced. It will age through 2024. Inner quote mark (7/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Opaque ruby. Explosive aromas of raspberry liqueur, potpourri and exotic spices, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Round, sweet and expansive, offering intense red and dark berry flavors that become weightier with air. This rich yet lively zin finishes with excellent clarity and echoing floral character. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

K&L Notes

Papera Vineyard is a head-pruned, old-vine Zinfandel planting dating back to 1934. From the winemaker: "The 2012 vintage was spectacular for growing Zinfandel in the Russian River Valley and this brooding wine is a wonderful example. Expansive aromas of wild raspberries, blackberry jam, fresh peppercorns and sassafras fill the glass. Ripe, wild berry flavors along with exotic spices, espresso, fresh figs and toasty oak are interrupted by expansive tannins and juicy mouthwatering acidity."
