Mountain-grown fruit gives this wine an exceptional intensity and purity of flavor. Tastes like the essence of blackberries, sprinkled with black pepper, anise and cocoa. As rich as it is, the finish is perfectly dry. There’s a rusticity to the texture, but that’s why Zinfandel is Zinfandel. Drink over the next six years, especially with barbecue or fine roasted meats and root vegetables.

The 2008 Zinfandel Mayacamas Range is very similar in style to the 2009, but it has a little more structure. Here, too, the forward aromas and flavors suggest the wine needs to be enjoyed over the next 2–3 years. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2014.

There’s something about the way zin ripens in the east-facing hills north of Calistoga that appeals to me in my gut as much as in my brain. It has the freshness of blackberries picked on a hike in Point Reyes. That wild berry flavor tinges toward brighter fruit, layering vibrant strawberry, tart raspberry and cracked black pepper into a savory Napa Valley red. Yum may not be a technical term, but I wrote it twice in a 20 wine tasting, once for this wine and again for Storybook’s Antaeus (reviewed on page 69). Balanced, sophisticated and elegant, this gains with air and would be delicious with simple roast leg of lamb.
