Winemaker Notes

This special cuvee is presented to show just how elegant, fragrant and balanced Napa hillside Zinfandels can be. It is a step beyond vineyard designation, and represents style as much as place. Most of the grapes come from the heart of our east facing vineyards; it is the balance and finesse of east facing vineyards that give the wine its name. The selection criteria emphasize aroma, middle-palate and finish – berries with hints of flowers, minerals and spice in the aroma; multi-layered and rich flavor on the broad and supple middle palate; and an intense, clean and lingering impression on the finish. A touch of Viognier is added to enhance the intriguingly exotic and sensual quality of this very special wine.

Critical Acclaim

CG 91
Connoisseurs' Guide
Rife with bright blackberry and strawberry scents that favor the fruit preserve end of the varietal spectrum, this one is both ripe and solidly balanced at the same time. It is supple at entry, then firms up nicely and reflects both the Storybook love of brisk finishes while also showing itself as both fully expressive and, at the same time, entirely capable of rewarding those who would put it away for three to six years. As with many 2007s, it carries a bit of latter palate raggedness, and while fine with food now, it will be better over time.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Tannins come first, firm and austere. Then juicy blueberry flavors build around the tannin with pleasing sweetness and spice. With a day of air, this particular bottle showed more alcohol, implying the wine may be best to decant now, to enjoy with steak.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Normally, the softest wine of the group and the portfolio (a title it retains in 2007) is the 2007 Zinfandel Eastern Exposures. This is a smaller cuvee of just over 500 cases. Elegant berry fruit intermixed with briary notes, loamy soil undertones, pepper and spice are followed by a round, soft, easygoing wine that should drink nicely for the next 4-5 years.

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.

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.
