Medium to medium-dark ruby. A heavenly bouquet of peach, raspberries and cherries nearly overwhelms the senses. It's hard to stop smelling this wine! On the palate, slightly richer and more darkly fruited than the lovely 2018 but with plenty of acidity, this wine never feels heavy or out of balance. Finishes quite clean and long with very fine tannins. Enjoy from release (if you like your wines young) through 2028.

Coming from the Russian River, the 2019 Zinfandel Papera Ranch is a juicy, blue and red-fruited effort offering lots of candied violets, tobacco, and orange blossom aromatics, medium-bodied richness, light tannins, and a juicy, nicely focused mouthfeel. This elegant, focused, nicely structured Zinfandel is good today but will be better with another year of bottle age and should see its 10th birthday in fine form.

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.
