Winemaker's Notes:

We crush fully mature grapes from our own vineyards and slowly barrel ferment them to dryness under the cool conditions of our caves. Patterned after the rosé wines of the southern Rhone and Provence, this wine is deeply flavored with a rich core and good length. A kiss of oak adds a welcome complexity.

It is best when served chilled, by itself, with smoked salmon or your own homemade gravlax.

My Notes:

About Storybook Mountain Vineyards:

Storybook Mountain is a winery totally dedicated to Zinfandel and has established a worldwide reputation for consistently high quality. The Zinfandel tradition began at Storybook Mountain in the early 1880s when its red clay-loam hillsides in the Mayacamas Range were first planted to this varietal. Here, the perfect match of estate and grape allows Zinfandel to show its true potential. Storybook Mountain's sought-after estate wines are carefully hand-crafted from choice grapes grown without the use of insecticides or herbicides. They are aged at least 12 months in the best French and American oak barrels, inside century-old caves dug deep into the mineral-rich volcanic rock underlying the hand-tended vineyard. Proprietor Jerry Seps' Zinfandels are famed for elegance and longevity. Raspberries, black cherries and spice are the keynote of these complex, well balanced wines.
