    Winemaker's Notes:

    Wines of forward fruit, supple balance and sensual promise. If the exuberance of youth is a key to your enjoyment of Zinfandel, this is your wine.

    This is our primary estate wine from 100% Napa Valley organically grown estate grapes. Here you will find all the richness and fruit for which Zinfandel is famous, plus the depth and structure associated with Napa hillside vineyards, and the balance for which Storybook wines are known. Crafted to be enjoyed on release, the wine's notable depth and balance will continue its appeal well into the future.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There's something about the way zin ripens in the east-facing north of Calistoga taht appeals to me in my gut as much as in my brain. It has the freshness of blackberries picked on a hike in Point Reyes. That wild berry flavor tinges toward brighter fruit, layering vibrant strawberry, tart raspberry and cracked black pepper into a savory Napa Valley red. Yum may not be a technical term, but I wrote it twice in a 20 wine tasting, once for this wine and again for Storybrook's Antaeus. Balanced, sophisticated and elegant, this gains with air and wouild be delicious with simple roast leg of lamb.

    Mountaingrown fruit gives this wine an exceptional intensity and purity of flavor. Tastes like the essence of blackberries, sprinkled with black pepper, anise and cocoa. As rich as it is, the finish is perfectly dry. There’s a rusticity to the texture, but that’s why Zinfandel is Zinfandel. Drink over the next six years, especially with barbecue or fine roasted meats and root vegetables.
