Williams Selyem, Russian River Valley, Bacigalupi Vineyard, Zinfandel 2019 (1.5L)
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Zinfandel Bacigalupi Vineyard is complex and drinkable with its detailed, spicy flavors and medium-bodied frame. It offers scents of baked blueberries and blackberries with wafts of cured meats, apricot, peppercorn and licorice. It has a pleasantly chewy frame to support its intense red and blue fruits, and gentle bursts of fresh acidity extending the spicy finish. Made entirely of Zinfandel, it comes from vines planted in the 1920s and was matured in about 20% new Taransaud barrels.
93 points James Suckling
Farmed from a small block of less than two acres, this zinfandel comes from 90+-year-old-vines with naturally low yield and concentration. Aromas of blackberries, ripe plums, tomato leaf and red currants. Full-bodied with fine tannins. There is good, steady acidity here, which keeps the juicy fruit and warming spice in line and fresh throughout. Well-balanced depth and intensity.
