    Winemaker's Notes:

    From a vineyard formerly owned by the Feeney Family and now owned by the Coulson Family, this wine exhibits extremely concentrated flavors of raspberry, cassis, mocha and sassafras that explode in your mouth. The aromas are similar, but with a high-toned, perfumed edge to them. Big, rich mouth-coating tannins give way to a long, jammy finish. A great new addition to our collection of zinfandels.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 vintage was a fabulous one for Williams Selyem, and the Zinfandels benefited from the cool, balanced growing season. The Papera is a big, rich, jammy wine, but also a drily elegant one. It offers waves of raspberry, Fig Newton, red currant and Canadian bacon flavors, with superfine tannins.

    Deep ruby color. Intense, floral-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry, anise and black tea. Extremely fresh in the mouth, offering sweet red berry preserve flavors and a supple texture. Becomes juicier with air, picking up a tangy note of blood orange. The finish repeats the sweet red fruit notes and hangs on impressively.

    Concentrated and tightly wound, yet offering rich, layered notes of tart blueberry, raspberry and savory pepper, with accents of anise and earth. The tannins are ripe but firm.
