Batch 62-the final batch from the excellent 2017 vintage-is exceptionally smooth, with a ripe raspberry character indicative of Mendocino County’s sun-drenched Zinfandel wines.
Our inaugural Chardonnay melds the rich character of 1000 Stories’ bourbon barrel-aged wines with California’s most celebrated white grape variety. This wine reflects the classic California style: fuller bodied, richly textured and brimming with lush fruit flavors.
GOLD RUSH RED
The California Gold Rush was a period of courage, bravado and curiosity. It was with these characteristics in mind that we crafted Gold Rush Red. Grapes chosen from the golden hills and valleys of California were blended to create this bold, adventurous testament to that intrepid spirit.
This rich, full-flavored Cabernet Sauvignon expresses a pioneering spirit along with signature bourbon barrel notes of charred vanilla and dried herbs.
THE LINE UP
GOLD RUSH RED
1000 Stories is made – like craft spirits and beer – in small lots, each unique and expressive of Winemaker Bob Blue’s interpretation of the fruit, vineyards and barrels whose singular qualities came together to create something new. Each batch offers an opportunity for discovery. Maturing 1000 Stories in new and used bourbon barrels from some of America’s finest bourbon distilleries lends nuance and enhances Zinfandel’s signature red fruit and spice notes. Because Bob knows a balanced wine can only come from a restrained approach to these intensely flavored barrels, he begins the aging process in traditional French and American oak wine barrels before transitioning lots to the bourbon barrels. This small-lot approach, together with insightful sourcing and careful management in the cellar, elicits the polished character, layered flavors and elegantly bold nature 1000 Stories has become known for.
