Bedrock Papera Ranch

2012 Bedrock Papera Ranch Heritage...$42.99
Russian River Valley
The barrel samples I tasted include the 2012 Papera Ranch Heritage, a site planted in 1934 in the heart of the Russian River area. Composed of 54% Zinfandel and the remainder Carignan, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and a number of obscure varietals, it achieved 14.7% alcohol and 350 cases were produced. Slightly rustic with a deep ruby/plum color along with hints of bouquet garni, earth, forest floor and red and black fruits, it is a mid-weight, tasty, stylish red to enjoy over the next 7-8 years.
Rated 88-90/100 The Wine Advocate
