Old school...old school.
Light in color, with a nice acidic backbone and true varietal character this taste like minimal intervention was used in the cellar (and Thank-you for that!).
Reminds me of how (Napa/Sonoma) Zins tasted decades ago.

A nice restrained Napa Zin. Very earthy interesting nose, but it could follow through. It just fell off the deep end on the finish and after some air.

Tannini morbidi, aromatico al punto giusto, buon finale, si beve benissimo!

Classic Napa Zin, lush and not overbearing . Great finish with enough heat and pepper.

I love Storybook Zins. No better balanced Zins exist. This one is very young (their Zins age!) but after a 2 hour decant there were beautiful scents of dark blackberry and smoky volcanic gravel. Elegant pure dark fruit and gravelly flavors, with long balanced finish. Love it. Thanks to my brother for cracking this one while I was visiting. (That's his newest dog Jake--a Tree-walker Coon Hound rescue--looking uninterested in the wine.)
