Winemaker Notes

Selected from the best barrels of the vintage, this wine takes complexity and depth to another dimension. We search primarily for flavor purity, focus, length and balance, to produce wines that can be described as multilayered, and marry power with finesse. While balance and fruit encourage early consumption, these same characteristics, coupled with depth and structure, provide the basics for the refined integration and silken complexity that comes to our Reserves after a decade or more.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Zinfandel Estate Reserve has a gorgeous floral nose of black cherry and strawberry, a medium to full-body, wonderfully supple texture, a lush finish and a long and well-balanced personality. This is an elegant, yet substantial Zinfandel to drink now and over the next 7-8 years.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
A sleek vintage of Jerry Seps’s Estate Reserve, this is packed with black cherry flavor, the fruit sweetness tamed by notes of licorice root and savory scents that bring to mind manzanita and tanbark oak. A long-lived mountain-grown red, this wine should bring its sweet and savory aspects together as it ages toward complexity.

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.
