THE STORY
“A leader in crafting wine aged in bourbon barrels, 1000 Stories melds California’s winemaking heritage with America’s storied bourbon culture. Expertly crafted by Master Winemaker Bob Blue from renowned California vineyards, 1000 Stories gets its acclaimed nuance and complexity from time spent in charred bourbon barrels—revealing a uniquely
American story in every glass.”

THE JOURNEY
This Zinfandel from California’s 2017 vintage blends old-vine fruit from historic Mendocino County vineyards with warmer, riper fruit from Paso Robles. Zinfandel lends a generous core of succulent ripe fruit, accented by fragrant notes of spice box and sautéed herbs, while a touch of Petite Sirah in the blend imparts considerable density, minerality and an unmistakable ruby-purple hue. In signature 1000 Stories fashion, this batch was aged in traditional French and American oak, with a portion finished in charred bourbon barrels before the final blend was assembled.
THE WINE
We release 1000 Stories Zinfandel in batches to reflect a unique mix of grape varieties, vineyards and bourbon barrels—no two batches are the same. Brimming with robust, eager flavors, this Batch grants a full range of stone fruit, from candied apricot to Bing cherry, alongside luscious berries. The mid-palate reveals sultry hints of grilled meats, plowed earth, star anise and a hint of black cardamom. On the finish, our unique bourbon-barrel aging process lent a bruleéd caramel warmth to the wine, giving it greater depth and character.
