Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For 1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel-Aged Zinfandel 2020

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, 1000 stories zinfandel 2020 was matured in used bourbon barrels – some up to 13 years old – chosen from America’s most celebrated distilleries. Over time, barrel-ageing polished the wine and lent further depth and nuance to its bold character. A powerful new batch of old barrels ranging from 8-12 years were incorporated into the mix resulting in 24% Old Bourbon and 3% New Bourbon in this batch.

This wine is a bit smoky but has more weight and is a smoother wine on the palette. As one might expect, 1000 Stories Zinfandel closes on a memorable note, concluding with a lingering finish.
