1000 Stories

1000 Stories is an amazing small batch Zinfandel made by Bob Blue out of California.  This wine retails at my local shop for right around $20.  

The wine is unique because it is aged in bourbon barrels.  The winemaker says this promotes the flavors of charred vanilla, dried herbs, and a hint of caramel.  I am not the best in tasting specific flavors in wine. I somewhat taste some habañero mixed in with the darker flavors.

The alcohol on this wine is 15.6% which is a little high for me. I typically prefer lower alcohol wines, however, this one doesn’t bother me. It feels balanced by the stronger flavors. 

Tonight’s pairing is with steak and lobster.  Happy Valentine’s Day!
