About this deal

These choice vineyards lend the wine tremendous depth, classic structure and red fruit notes balanced by subtle spice.

Bob Blue, England, Hopland, it was almost unheard of to get French oak wine barrels and American oak barrels were for whiskey, Mendocino County, not wine. At 1000 stories, we share that same bold roaming spirit, which is why each of our wines tell incredible stories of exploration and discovery. Classic Zinfandel flavors of ripe cherry and dark bramble fruit are balanced by charred bourbon barrel accents of toffee, nutmeg and vanilla for a deep, rich finish. The layered flavors of Zinfandel coupled with our bold barrel ageing method result in notes of cranberries, prunes, Marcona almonds, toffee, oregano and thyme. Two months of bourbon barrel aging lends vanilla and whiskey accents in the glass, culminating in a warm caramel finish.Subdue the mass population by giving them bread to eat, satisify a persons immediate need for nourishment and then distract them by entertaining them with unbelievable and ridiculous forms of entertainment like deadly chariot races and even deadlier gladiator matches. We're big fans of Californian wines and this is a great addition to the collection, ready to drink immediately. Dark in color, the aromas suggest ripe berries and cherries, and the flavors flow similarly rich and deep. Every vintage page from the most recent to the oldest has detailed charts showing production by region and the most popular, best, most expensive and cheapest wines of the vintage currently listed. Flavors of red licorice and brown spice usher into the blend courtesy of Paso Robles vineyards, while a touch of soulful Lake County Petite Sirah completes the wine, contributing strong color and profound suggestions of black pepper.

In every bottle you’ll find journeys, encounters, people and places—stories that stoke the roaming spirit in all of us so that once our glasses are finished, we set out once again to create the next chapter in our stories. It’s an unweildy creature that settles down slightly and becomes decadent once poured into your wine glass. It starts with a complex bouquet of black currant, cedar and ripe black cherry and continues on the palate with ripeness and concentration, without a lot of tannin. In addition, Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (5%) rounds out the batch with its complexity black fruits and a distinct black pepper.Zinfandel flavors of strawberry, raspberry, dark cherry and violet are complemented by notes of vanilla bean, coconut oil, caramel, white pepper and dry herbs. Batch 26, 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.
