Storybook Mountain Vineyards Mayacamas Range Napa Zinfandel
This wine displays forward fruit, supple balance and sensual promise. If the exuberance of youth is a key to your enjoyment of Zinfandel, the Mayacamas Range Zinfandel is your wine.
"It's young and it's deep; it's nicely focused on bright blackberry fruit and it's tight but promising-and that is just in its mid-volume aromas. The tight aspect comes doubly into play in the mouth where tannin and acidity combine to add coarse, grabby impressions that interrupt the wine's fairly likeable fruit and consign the wine to the cellar. Time is absolutely of the essence here, and given the remarkable Storybook Mountain track record with its Zins, we have nothing but full confidence in this one's ability to reach great heights."
