Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium garnet in color, the 2014 Zinfandel Papera Vineyard offers up notions of prunes, baked cherries, dried mulberries and spice box with a touch of hoisin. Velvety, big, rich and full-bodied, it has a lovely racy line lending lift to the long, opulent finish. (LPB)
Complex and well-focused, with distinctive aromas of blueberry and mint leading to complex, densely packed flavors of raspberry, white pepper and loamy mineral. Ripe tannins frame the finish. Drink now through 2026. (TF)
According to the winery: "The nearly opaque color of the Papera 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 flavors. 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."
