2016 1000 Stories Zinfandel

September 21, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#36-18-PIE

The report this week is a little unusual since it is about a sampling of two different batches of the same 2016 Zinfandel from 1000 Stories from winemaker Bob Blue. The other twist is that both of these Zins have been aged in bourbon barrels.

The wines tasted were Batch #45 and Batch #47 from the 2016 vintage. Both wines were very similar in taste. Both had flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and a little cherry. The #45 was a little sweeter, while the #47 had a little more cherry flavor. Neither had much noticeable tannin, and I could not discern a significant taste imparted by the bourbon barrel aging. The alcohol content is 15.5% for each batch, and Norm's score is 87 - 88.

Overall, these zinfandels are quite drinkable with big fruit and a mellow finish. Either would pair well with grilled meat or barbecue.

price : $15 - $18

score: 87 - 88
