1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel Wine
1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel Wine unfolds with a unique flavor profile featuring vanilla, dried herbs, and a hint of caramel.
1000 Stories is produced in small batches, much like premium bourbon. Select parcels of Zinfandel were sourced from Mendocino County, some of which came from vineyards with family histories dating back to the 1880’s. Each individual lot started the aging process in traditional American and French wine barrels. The next step was the introduction of the wine to bourbon barrels. Part of the blend was aged in new bourbon barrels from the Independent Stave Company. The final step of the process was the most grand: the blend completed its barrel aging in old bourbon barrels from famed distilleries such as Heaven Hill and Four Roses. Some of these barrels were single-use barrels used to make the highest quality bourbon.
The mighty buffalo is an iconic symbol of American heritage, a heritage woven with a thousand stories, unique traditions and a pioneering spirit. The country’s history of hard work and tenacity lives on today and continues to be at the essence of America’s character. This is the inspiration for 1000 Stories, a reflection of the winemakers’ pioneering spirits. It wasn’t a quick process, but creating something by hand to meet exacting standards seldom is.
