1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel is released in batches to reflect a unique mix of grape varieties, vineyards and bourbon barrels.
This 1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel is enhanced by the residual alcohol the bourbon barrels contribute to its overall big, rich, jammy character. This wine has a plush mouth feel with red berry and raspberry flavors that come through uniquely with each batch.
1000 Stories Zinfandel is released in batches to reflect the wine’s unique journey from the vineyard to the barrel and, ultimately, the glass. No two batches are the same. Our Zinfandel Batch 86 is bursting with red fruit aromas typical of Zinfandel – strawberry, raspberry and cherry fill the glass. Batch 86 spent more time aging in Bourbon barrels than most of our Zinfandels and it shows in the profile: sweet components like caramel, toffee and also some dry herb and spice notes are prominently displayed.
Batch 86 is a strong expression of several Zinfandel vineyards from warm and cool regions throughout California. Early in the aging process, about 40% of the blend spent time in bourbon barrels—fairly typical for 1000 Stories Zinfandel batches. But two months before bottling, winemaker Sebastian Donoso changed things up and put a small portion back in bourbon barrels. The remaining wine aged in a combination of American and French oak barrels.
