Wine Spectator, 94 Points
"A compelling wine that balances a distinct personality with a finely crafted texture and structure. Expressive and brambly black and red fruit pairs with toasty sage and exotic baking spice notes. Drink now through 2029. 1,000 cases made." — TF
About the Wine:
"With irrigation available to these vines planted in 1934, this vineyard weathered the Labor Day Weekend heatwave quite well. Even after our aggressive sorting, both in the vineyard and at the winery, we were still able to produce a normal amount of this flagship wine. Picked three times over a two-week period in the second half of September, each lot was cold soaked for five days before being pressed to French oak, an average of 25% new. Unfined. Unfiltered."
About the Vineyard:
"Just a stone's throw from Carlisle Vineyard, this grande dame of the Russian River Valley was planted in 1934 by Celestino (Charlie) Papera. While many old-vine vineyards contain plenty of mixed black varieties, most of the blocks at Papera Ranch are 95+% Zinfandel. One block, however, does contain a significant amount of Carignane with a sprinkling of Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Valdiguié. Given its cool location, this vineyard is typically picked in late October."
