A barrel selection with 10% viognier Lots of apricot and flowers greet the nose followed by peppery and spicy, red plummy fruit. Rather light bodied in the mouth, this offers lovely transparency, a while a little simple it is remarkably pure with such fine herbal spice inner mouth perfumes on the backend accenting the fresh red plum and berry flavors. This is so well put together with fine supporting acids and polished tannins, creating a taut, elegant framework with which the fruit can express itself. A unique expression of Zinfandel. 92pts

As with all big, complex, multi-layered wines, this beautiful Zin improves over three to four hours after uncorking, and is a new wine every thirty minutes. Smoke, coffee and leather fill the nose with a soft but pleasantly balanced opening, with notes of cherry, blueberry and grapefruit appearing fleetingly and adding a fruity zing to this fragrant wine. On the palate, a zesty explosion of a broad array of tastes, including cherry, strawberry, grapefruit, raisin, plum, caramel, pepper and smoky oak, is supported by pleasant acidity and soft, silky tannins that lead to a smooth, full, clean and balanced finish.

There's only one other wine I've had, in my short existence as a wine enthusiast that has come close to the please Storybook's zin gives me. It's jammy, well-balanced, and simply wonderful to drink. $40 is often a splurge for me at this point in my life but this is a splurge well worth it.
