1000 Stories 'Bourbon Barrel-Aged' Zinfandel Red Wine California, Bold & Smoky 75cl
About this deal
Batch 34, in another spectacular California vintage, Winemaker Bob Blue drew on a base of dry-farmed, head-trained Zinfandel vines from Mendocino County to craft this nuanced red. The layered flavors of Zinfandel coupled with our bold barrel ageing method result in notes of cranberries, prunes, Marcona almonds, toffee, oregano and thyme.
In the bold tradition of 1000 Stories, Batch 88 was aged in French and American oak barrels, then finished in aged bourbon barrels. Rounding out the blend are some Zinfandels from Colusa County, Syrah from PasoRobles and Petite sirah from Mendocino.Dry-farmed, head-trained Zinfandel vines from Mendocino imbue depth, classic structure and red fruit notes to the blend, while premium coastal grapes from the Paso Robles AVA lend polished tannins, depth of structure and enticing aromas of Asian spices and cherry licorice. I watch and love business guru Gary Vaynerchuck who initially started his media career selling wine.
In every bottle you’ll find journeys, encounters, people and places—stories that stoke the roaming spirit in all of us so that once our glasses are finished, we set out once again to create the next chapter in our stories.

In addition, Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (5%) rounds out the batch with its complexity black fruits and a distinct black pepper.
