2017 Storybook Mountain Zinfandel Mayacamus Range
Napa Valley, California
Arguably Napa’s most famous Zinfandel, Storybook represents “the pinnacle of wine quality in California,” according to Robert Parker. 100% estate grown organic Zinfandel. Here you will find all the varietal character and fruit for which Zinfandel is famous, plus the depth and structure associated with Napa hillside vineyards. Medium-full bodied, dry and definitely not a jammy fruit bomb, this shows complex red and dark fruit, hints of vanilla and brambly spice. Originally known as Grimm Vineyards and Wine Vaults, the winery was founded in 1883 by Adam Grimm. The winery was destroyed in 1964 by the Hanely Ranch Fire, however in 1976, Jerry Seps and his wife Sigrid fell in love with the wild, abandoned 90 acre site. The Seps renamed the vineyard Storybook Mountain to denote its fairytale beauty and to honor the brothers Grimm.
