Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California

Wine Advocate — 95 points

Shows presence and richness, with a touch of old-school briar that’s deeply structured yet never weighty. Delivers black cherry and tart blueberry flavors accented by dusty sage, licorice and floral notes, which build toward refined tannins.

Vinus — 94 points
The 2019 Zinfandel Papera Ranch shows a slightly more reserved side of the Russian River. Readers should plan on cellaring this for at least a year or two as the acids and tannins are pretty tightly wound. Blue/purplish fruit, lavender, sage, mint and licorice show a darker side of Zinfandel that is so beguiling. Best after 2024.

The 2019 Zinfandel Papera Ranch has floral notes of candied flowers, turned baked earth, and dried peach. The palate is tangy with juicy fruit and bright with its acidity.
