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 Seps’ wines are famed for intensity and longevity. Raspberries, black cherries and spice are the essence of their complex, well balanced and elegant wines. Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

A little overboard with the tangy aftertaste, but not bad on the whole. Full and rich. Decent Zin.

Storybook is situated at the north end of Napa Valley, on the eastern slope of the Mayacamas Range. Their exposure provides ideal morning sun yet limits the hot rays of the late afternoon, with cold breezes flowing from the Russian River to the west. Their vineyards are cultivated without herbicides or pesticides. Very much in the 'claret' style, Storybook Zin 2005 has been described by Wine & Spirits as "pure, arrestingly aromatic"- they awarded the wine 95 points.
