94pointsStorybook Mountain 2008 Estate Reserve Zinfandel (Napa Valley)

This is the most elegant of the winery's new Zinfandels, although elegant has to be taken in context when it comes to mountain fruit with this intensity and power. It's a big wine, with potent raspberry, cherry and blackberry fruit. Yet there's a delicacy to it, even considering the tannins, that's almost like a Pinot Noir, strange as that sounds. Earns its high score by virtue of this magic. Should age effortlessly throughout the decade.
