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. 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. The finale of this red wine from the wine-growing region of California, which is capable of aging well, finally impresses with considerable reverberation.

Batch 86 spent more time aging in Bourbon barrels than most of our Zinfandels and it shows in the profile: sweet components like caramel, toffee and also some dry herb and spice notes are prominently displayed. Years ago, when I was just starting out as a winemaker, it was almost unheard of to get French oak wine barrels and American oak barrels were for whiskey, not wine.

USA Producer Notes Lodi’s historic old-vine Zinfandel sites contribute the largest portion of this blend, along with fruit from Mendocino County and San Luis Obispo. In addition, Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (5%) balances out the batch with its complex black fruits and a distinct black pepper spice. No one alike, each batch of our bold Zinfandel brings distinct notes of blackberry, spice and vanilla that deepen alongside char, smoke and caramel from an unmatched selection of barrels. It was then balanced out with grapes from Dry Creek Valley (31%) that provide flavors of complex black fruits and distinct black pepper spice.

I was having Sunday supper with my brother and sister-in-law and while enjoying my recipe for slow roasted Lechon Asado, I opened a bottle of 1000 Stories 2014 Zinfandel. With its present fruit acidity, the 1000 Stories Zinfandel presents itself wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The mid-palate reveals sultry hints of grilled meats, plowed earth, star anise and a hint of black cardamom.
