VINEYARDS
Bob sources grapes from premium vineyards throughout California, selecting parcels which are most expressive. Mendocino County is celebrated for Zinfandel, so Bob considers Mendocino grapes as an essential component to the blend. These vineyards are located on bench land from Redwood Valley south to the Sanel Valley, a distance of 26 miles, and range in age from 9-45 years old.

BARRELS & AGING
1000 Stories begins its aging like most Zinfandels: in wine barrels. Then, the tradition transitions to innovation. Bob selects a combination of new and used bourbon barrels to complete the aging process. Each batch is crafted individually and is unique in its final profile. Aging in bourbon barrels imparts characteristics of charred vanilla and dried herbs.

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. These choice vineyards lend the wine tremendous depth, classic structure and red fruit notes balanced by subtle spice. Hedonistic, juicy Zinfandel from Lodi (11%) brings round tannins and opulent notes of dark fruit to the 2015 1000 Stories Zinfandel. Attractive flavors of red licorice and brown spice usher into the blend courtesy of Paso Robles vineyards (9%), while a touch of soulful Lake County Petite Sirah completes the wine, contributing depth of color and profound suggestions of black pepper.
Individual lots for this intriguing wine began the ageing process in traditional American and French oak barrels before being introduced to new bourbon barrels. The characteristic char from these sought-after vessels imparted attractive smoky notes to the nose and palate, where the lasting impression is of richly flavored vanilla, dried herbs and a hint of caramel. As a final winemaking step, the wine was matured in used bourbon barrels – some as many as 13 years old – from some of America’s most celebrated distilleries. Over time, barrel-ageing polished the wine and lent further depth and nuance to its bold character. In the glass, this nuance ultimately takes the form of exotic spice, crushed rock and roasted caramel notes, and a richly deep and persistent body. As one might expect, 1000 Stories Zinfandel closes on a memorable note, concluding with a lingering finish.
