Neverending

Today, we are simply thrilled to bring you the fantastic, balanced, elegant and classically Napa Storybook Mountain Vineyards 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is the best 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon we’ve had the pleasure to taste. It is certainly the best 2011 Cab we’ve ever featured.

This wine is stunning and deep - and loaded with aromas of dark fruit of plum, mulberry, dried meats, summer forest, cassis, blackberry preserve, clove and subtle, savory, dark dried herbs. This wine bursts forth on the palate, driving big balanced flavors of mixed dark berry reduction, plum jam, blackberry, red currant, black raspberry, baker’s chocolate, black licorice and dried red rose.

If you’ve had the good fortune to have taken advantage of our past Storybook offers, you’ve probably already loaded up your shopping cart. If you are still reading this, what are you waiting for?!

“This is Jerry Seps’s basic estate zinfandel, and it’s a confident beauty in 2011. The aroma invites you in with hints of roses and herbs, cool red berries and an open spice box of exotic scents. The texture leads you along with silken ease, offering fresh, friendly juice in a supple yet substantial structure. This isn’t complex, but it’s plush and delicious. Decant a bottle for roast quail stuffed with wild mushrooms.” - 93 points - Wine & Spirits Magazine
