Winemaker's Notes

The same structure, finesse, and purity of fruit that have long characterized Storybook Mountain Zinfandels are evident in Seps Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. These qualities reflect the estate vineyard's relatively cool climate, its clay-loam soils, and its easterly and northerly exposures. The style of the wines also reflects Jerry Seps' preference for wines of moderate alcohol, intense, focused fruit and exemplary balance.

Critical Acclaim

"One panelist described this as a wine 'from someone who knows cabernet, in the old guard; it's not slutty or sweet.' Jerry Seps, in fact, is known for his zinfandel - which either makes the comment more ironic, or the wine that much more impressive...this wine tastes of wild fruit - dark currants, tiny blueberries and juicy blackberries. There's just a hint of herbal character to keep varietal integrity, a minty edge that cools the finish. Beautifully balanced, this has a long life ahead."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
