2017 Estate Reserve Zinfandel - MAGNUM
The amazing aromatics of this wine bring you into our vineyard on an early summer day after the fog lifts - with scents of marjoram, cardamom, and sandlewood. Alive on the palate with its cherry, raspberry core, it is focused, intense and long without the artifice of sweetness and weight.
"There are certainly Zinfandels that speak with a more forceful vice, but very few can rival the eloquence and sophistication found here, and, once again, Storybook Mountain has come up with a complete and carefully crafted offering that, while long on real varietal soul, has an uncanny resemblance to finely structured claret. Though not al all brooding or so tightly wound as to demand lengthy keeping, it is a wine that will age and age and show even greater grace and complexity with time, and, given its maker's well-established track record for making exceptionally long-lived Zins, we have no hesitance in predicting that this one will continue to impress once its twentieth birthday has come and gone" 95 Points, Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
