Mission Briefing

Codename:

Storybook Romance

We are so thrilled to welcome back the multi-award-winning Storybook Mountain Vineyards. Storybook has been one of our most popular wineries over the last six plus years. For good reason, too… their wines are always incredible.

Today’s Storybook Mountain 2009 Antaeus is a delicious and very elegant blend (of 51% Zinfandel, 37% Cabernet, 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot) that our tasting panel went absolutely wild for. This wine is rich, abundant, and just plain joy inducing on the nose and on the palate.

Please accept your mission, and this wine, with our heartiest recommendation.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Very pretty, with dark purple edges and a deep ruby center.

Smell:

Zinny and delightful, with blackberry syrup, briar patch, young sweetwood, dried violet, black tea leaf, New England dried fall leaves, and chocolate covered espresso beans.

Taste:

Dark and very lush with stewed mixed berry, braised plum, young sweetwood, black tea, dark dried violets, allspice, briar and dried fall leaves.

Finish:

Very long and very lush with an extended elegant feel and flavors that tail off very gradually. At the end, a lovely dryness gradually spreads across the palate.

Pairing:

Enjoy this lush and flavorful wine with a hearty Moroccan lamb Tagine.
