Storybook Mayacamas Zinfandel Zinfandel America California Napa 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Storybook Mountain has become one of the most appreciated zinfandels in Napa. Very smooth styled, not overly extracted, this zinfandel is perfect for your steak dinner. The vineyard is on the Mayacamas Range and gets cooling night airs. Planted over 30 years ago, and organically grown. Parker says "The gorgeous 2004 Zinfandel Mayacamas Range Exhibits [more] minerality and complexity as well as an attractive floral component, good underlying acidity, superb concentration, and a textured, layered mouthfeel."

Mayacamas Vineyards is a wine estate located in the Mayacamas Mountains that divide the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. The old stone winery is perched on the edge of a dormant volcano crater near the top of Mt. Veeder. Fifty two acres of vineyards are planted on mountain sides ranging from 1,800 to 2,400 feet above sea level. Deer, eagles, coyotes, cougars, foxes, bobcats, and an occasional bear still inhabit this rugged terrain. The winery was built in 1889 by John Henry Fisher, a German immigrant, who first worked as a sword engraver in Philadelphia and then became a pickle merchant in San Francisco. The winery was also used by his family as a summer home and as a ranch to raise and care for the horses he used to deliver pickles to his clients in San Francisco. He sold his wine by the barrel. The barrels were loaded onto horse drawn wagons, driven fifteen miles to the Napa River, and then transferred to ferry boats which took the wine to San Francisco where it was bottled and sold At Mayacamas Vineyards our objective is to make wine with as much flavor, complexity and character as grapes can deliver. Given proper care and enough time, we believe these make the most interesting and enjoyable wines of all. Read less
