Winemaker's Notes
1,000 Stories Bourbon barrel-aged Zinfandel is a harmonious balance of Zinfandel grapes from Mendocino and Sonoma counties which are bursting with aromatic red fruit scents and complex black fruit flavors. A touch of Petite Sirah and Syrah enhance those flavors even more with bold black and white pepper spices. The batch is then rounded out with a layer of smokiness derived from the new bourbon barrel aging.

Critical Acclaim
Wilfred Wong - vintage 2014 - 91 points
"COMMENTARY: Winemaker and Storyteller Bob Blue, with decades of experience, has married Zinfandel to the use of new and used bourbon barrels. Hmm, what a concept? I didn't know what to expect, perhaps some smokiness? The 2016 1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel is quite delicious. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with bramble berries and oak in its aromas and flavors. Its smoky finish (go figure) pairs it perfectly with a full fledge barbeque with plenty of wood-smoked meats." (Tasted: August 1, 2018, San Francisco, CA)
