1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel 2016 Red California Wine 750 mL
1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel 2016 Red California Wine 750 mL

 

The wine has a deep, rich purple color. Intense red fruits are on the nose, with black pepper spice and a touch of cloves and dried herbs. The palate is full with ripe tannins, raspberry, cranberry and black fruit flavors, followed by white and black pepper spices. The wine finishes with a touch of warmth that lingers on and on. 

 The grapes come from vineyards such as the Grider, Buckholtz, Mattern, Poor, and Hooper, with family histories dating back to the 1880s. The grapes are trained in a traditional head trained configuration (typical of the very first plantings), with only a single stake holding the vine to a modern vertical trellis system, supporting the vine with a wire. The wine is blended from: Zinfandel with a little Petit Sirah and Syrah.

Finally, the blend is aged in grand old bourbon barrels from distilleries such as Heaven Hill and Four Roses. Some of these barrels are 13 years old and were once used to make the highest quality bourbon.

Amapola Creek Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard 2014 California Red Wine 2013 750 mL
Amapola Creek Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard 2014 California Red Wine 2013 750 mL

95 Points Wine Advocate March 2016

"From the famous Monte Rosso red soil vineyard, two Zinfandels were produced. The 2013 Zinfandel Monte Rosso (680 cases coming in at 16% alcohol) is 100% Zinfandel. At $45.00, this is a great buy! Made from 123-year-old head-pruned vines, the wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a big, sweet kiss of black cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry with some dusty, loamy soil undertones and pepper as well as hints of charcuterie and spice. It is full-bodied, lavishly rich, and stunningly pure. It should make a savory mouthful for at least a decade."

-Robert M Parker Jr. on Amapola Creek Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard  Vinas Antiguas Sonoma Valley 2013

Dry Creek Vineyard Heritage Vines Zinfandel 2015 Red California Wine 750 mL

87 Wine Advocate for 2014 vintage

"The 2014 Zinfandel Heritage Vines is a blend of 78% Zinfandel, 20 % Petite Sirah, and the rest Primitivo and Carignane made from Zinfandel vines that were planted from cuttings of pre-Prohibition old-vine material. This has nice berry fruit and is medium-bodied without the complexity of the Vogensen Ranch or the pure power and fruit of the old-vine cuvée, but it is very nice. Moderately high in alcohol (14.5%) and well-made, it should be drunk over the next 5-7 years." -Robert Parker Jr.

One of the historic wineries, Dry Creek is among the pioneers in the movement for high-quality Zinfandels. I met the original owner, David Stare, before I even started the Wine Advocate in 1978, so that gives you an idea of how far back both of us go. Tel. (707) 433 1000
