2018 Mayacamas Range Zinfandel
The Mayacamas Range Zinfandel is our primary estate wine from 100% Napa Valley organically grown grapes. Here you will find all the varietal character and fruit for which Zinfandel is famous, plus the depth and structure associated with Napa hillside vineyards, and the balance for which Storybook wines are known. Crafted to be enjoyed on release, the wine’s notable depth and balance will continue its appeal well into the future.
"Jerry Seps's widest selection from his hillside estate northwest of Calistogs, Mayacamas Range is meant to be enjoyed in its youth. The wine has grace and energy, delivering dark-sherry roundness directly into the tannins and their bone-broth savor. Those tannins combine blueberry-skin freshness and a hint of bitter almond in a lasting, supple impression. Heady and beautiful." 94 points Wine & Spirits Magazine
"The latest of Storybook Mountain's Mayacamas Range bottling is very much in the winery style and directed to fans of higher acidity, berryish Zinfandel. It is a refined, but still-nascient offering at this point, and its use today would call for service with foods like lighter meats with savory seasonings. But, as is the case with virtually all of the Zins from Storybook, it is certain to age extremely well."
