1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel
1000 Stories recalls winemaking techniques popularized by earlier generation winemaking pioneers. Long before French oak was available, winemaker Bob Blue would neutralize used whiskey barrels to hold wine. Today, French oak is commonplace, so ageing 1000 Stories in bourbon barrels is a nod to the way things were. Instead of neutralizing the barrels, they are used to enhance the complexity of the wine.
TASTING NOTESFull-bodied, rich wine with ripe fruit notes of dried cherry and bramble. A thread of vanilla spice, mocha and butterscotch hints at the character of their older bourbon barrels.
FOOD PAIRINGZinfandel wine is happiest when paired with anything from the meat aisle, from barbecue pork ribs, leg of lamb or a big, hearty meal.
