Williams Selyem Zinfandel Russian River Valley Bacigalupi Vineyard 2006
This is a pure zinfandel vineyard that shows its personality through a depth of concentrated blackberry and raspberry jam characteristics. Along with the berry jam flavors, your mouth is filled with mature rich tannins that finish with a slight sweetness to them. Lower acids than the Feeney zin round out the tannins and leave a ripe berry finish that lingers on and on.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Not a Zin that beats you over the head. Could stand another year or three in the bottle, but tasty now. Notes of Cherry and Licorice on the nose with a body that lingers. 88 now, perhaps 90/91 in a year or two.
