Highest rated Zinfandel EVER   


2010 Napa Valley Estate Reserve Zinfandel

When zinfandel has the elegance of a great pinot noir, it feels transformative. This is a delicate, airy red wine, gentle to the touch, as meaty as the purple–blue tension of the color would imply, as transparent as the ruby light that shines through the glass. The tannins set the wine apart: They seem to carry a scent of roses. Tannins in red wines from the Napa Valley are often bold, juicy, rich and powerful. In zinfandel, you might expect them to be rustic. This wine’s tannins are, in fact, among the most refined I have tasted in any wine from the Napa Valley, achieved through the sensible and sensitive organic farming practiced by Jerry Seps at his estate in the hills above Calistoga. Zinfandel is what these red, volcanic soils were meant to grow and this 2010 Reserve may be their most remarkable performance yet. If you know anyone born in 2010, a case of this wine would make a great gift, ready by the time they turn 21.       97 Points  Wine & Spirits Magazine

2009 Estate Reserve Zinfandel

"Storybook Mountain has long set the standard for just how good Napa Valley Zinfandel can be and this latest Reserve version once again proves that the variety can indeed yield wines of great beauty and admirable sophistication. From its deep and layered aromas of blackberries, dried flowers and sweet oak to its bright and beautifully composed flavors, it is a most complex and compelling take on the grape, and one that comes with the structure to grow for a decade or more. Zinfandel just does not get any better than this."
