Buy Storybook Mountain Vineyards Zinfandel Estate Reserve
Wine Advocate 90 points - Storybook Mountain’s Zinfandel Estate Reserve is one of the few California Zins that can last and improve for a decade or more. The 2004, clearly the most backward wine of this portfolio, possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as restrained but promising aromatics of spring flowers, crushed rocks, black cherries, raspberries, and blue fruits. Structured and medium-bodied, with some austere tannin to shed, this impressively endowed effort requires 1-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following decade. (Jun 2006)

Wine maker notes
Selected from the best barrels of the vintage, this wine takes complexity and depth to another dimension. Layers of flavors and aromas, enhanced by focus and length, destine our Estate Reserves to age gracefully over many years.

Storybook Mountain has established a world-wide reputation for the consistently high quality of its wines. 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, an ideal match of terroir and grape allows Zinfandel to show its true potential.Legend has it that all Storybook Zinfandels have happy endings. Storybook Mountain’s sought-after estate wines are carefully hand-crafted from choice grapes grown in certified organic estate vineyards surrounding the winery. They are aged at least 12 months in the best French, Hungarian and American oak barrels, inside century-old caves dug deep into the mineral-rich volcanic rock underlying the hand-tended vineyard. Proprietors Jerry and Sigrid Sepsí wines are famed for intensity and longevity. Raspberries, black cherries and spice are the essence of their complex, well balanced and elegant wines.
