(From «nv» Vintage) This is our primary estate wine from 100% Napa Valley organically grown estate grapes. Here you will find all the richness 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.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2006 Vintage) A bit of a brushy overlay sits atop this wine's too wiry fruit in both nose and mouth, and the wine is undeniably ripe in orientation. It never finds the depth or winning ways that seem to come with most of its stablemates, and the combination of narrow aftertaste and hot finish confirm its shortcomings and leave the wine trailing the leaders.
