1000 Stories Holiday Trio
2019 CHARDONNAY, 2018 GOLD RUSH RED, ZINFANDEL BATCH #83
What goes better with the holidays than a bottle of 1000 Stories bourbon barrel-aged wine? A trio of bottles! Give cheers to the season with our full-bodied Chardonnay, fragrant Zinfandel, and velvety-smooth Gold Rush Red.
Our 2019 Chardonnay reflects the classic California style: fuller bodied, richly textured and brimming with lush fruit flavors. Fresh notes of pear, pineapple and peach dominate the palate, framed by a baked-apple richness and a creamy mouthfeel. Bourbon barrel aging weaves a warm thread of dried herbs and cedar in the glass, culminating in a vanilla-caramel finish.
2018 GOLD RUSH RED
Our 2018 Gold Rush Red leads with the velvety-smooth texture of Merlot and the subtle style of Pinot Noir, marrying Merlot’s ripe raspberry and blackberry notes with a thread of cinnamon and nutmeg spice from the Pinot Noir. Petite Sirah lends an inky purple hue and pleasing minerality to the blend, while Zinfandel rounds out the wine’s luscious core of berry and spice. This red blend culminates in a bourbon-barrel finish of dried herbs and charred vanilla.
ZINFANDEL BATCH #83
The wine marries Mendocino’s historic old-vine Zinfandel sites with vineyards in Paso Robles, Lodi and Amador County. Zinfandel lends a generous core of ripe fruit, accented by fragrant notes of spice box and sautéed herbs, while Petite Sirah imparts considerable density, minerality and an unmistakeable ruby-purple hue. In signature 1000 Stories fashion, this batch was aged in traditional French and American oak, with a portion finished in charred bourbon barrels before the final blend was assembled
