Winemaker Notes

Antaeus, the son of Water and Earth in Greek mythology, is the symbol of strength derived from the soil. So too this wine, deriving strength from the matching of site and grape on every part of our land. The 2013 Antaeus is composed of 55% Zinfandel, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot. The intensity derived from red clay soils is here in full, while the coolness of the site provides the acid balance so essential to a wine’s grace and longevity.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Claret-like reserve is an indelible and constant trait of this particular maker, and it is more than evident here. While it is marked by fine concentration of substance throughout, the latest Antaeus is as carefully composed as it is rich, and it conveys an uncommon combination of polish and structured solidity. Its Cabernet component becomes obvious as it tightens and squares up at the finish, but there is so much fruity length that there is no questioning the wine's future beauty. Set it aside for at least another four or five years, and know that it will age beautifully for a decade or more.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Jerry Seps and his daughter, Colleen, blend this from the Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot they grow at their hillside vineyard facing Mount St. Helena. It's more zinny than anything else - with scents of zinnias and wild blackberries. Its earthiness and floral freshness turns toward simple flavors of plumb blueberries, lasting with straight forward richness.

Storybook Mountain Vineyards Winery Image
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.

Red Wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
