Story Zinfandel California Shenandoah Valley Picnic Hill 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Light vanilla tones are backed by lots of astringent red fruits, red currant and pomegranate, with a hint of herb and roast meatiness. Enters with sweet red fruits, slightly exotic berries fruits, fruit di bosco, nice freshness and good balance that help to hide it’s 16% Very candied but in a fresh way, sugared raspberries with a peppery cinnamon edge for balance, Nic crisp tannins and a lovely stemmy tone add length to the finish. 88pts

Not my style, but it has its merits. Some cherry/strawberry fruits with a mild tangy sweetness, accompanied by strong wood flavors. Pretty simple.

    Pretty well-contained enjoyable zin. Gentile nose with lots of dirt. Well balanced and sweet without being too sugary. Grainy short finish. Middle of the road for me.
