Connoisseurs' Guide

The Zinfandels of Storybook Mountain Vineyard and, in particular, its flagship Estate Reserve bottlings, inevitably stand out from the crowd for their depth and signature sense of claret-like sophistication rather than big, flashy fruit and unctuous richness, and the 2018 edition meets every expectation in doing just that. Though many would argue that Zinfandel generally reaches its best in four or five years, this is a wine to tuck away for a relatively lengthy stay in the cellar rather one made with hasty drinking in mind. It is not that it is anything other than impressive right now, but a full decade of patience is bound to make a very good thing even better.

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

This wine’s bright fragrance carries a zesty cranberry highlight over the savory structure that grounds the fruit. This is a clean vintage of Estate Reserve, firm in its bitterchocolate depths of flavor. Designed to cellar, this will show its elegance at ten years of age.

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.

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.
