Bacigalupi Winery Notes: Blackberry and plum jump from the glass and intermix with red raspberry and cherry. A floral quality comes through, with a little aeration, and complements the darker elements of wood spices and clove. The flavors lead with dark berry fruits but the red fruits explode in the middle and transition to anise and clove, and hint of lavender on the finish. The robust tannin fans out on the finish, tempered by a refreshing acidity throughout. This is another classic Zinfandel from the historic Bacigalupi ranch.--Williams Selyem

Papera Winery Notes: The profile of the Papera Zinfandel boasts of heavy black fruits and offers an explosion of aromas and flavors. Intense notes of baking spices, India ink, and coffee intermingle with boysenberry, blackberry, peach and nectarine on the nose. Though this wine is comprised of rich flavors, it somehow remains light in weight thanks to hints of violets and purple flowers, and refreshing acidity. Notes of blackberry cobbler and cocoa nib cling to the palate of this classic old-vine Zinfandel.--Williams Selyem
