Wine meets Whiskey!

1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel 2014

Picked this up at Trader Joes for $17.  Everyone loves a story and storytelling comes up often in wine marketing.  So this wine quickly found its way into my grocery cart.  

I’m sitting here sharing this with friends as we watch Alabama whip up on Washington State.  Laura says, ” Roll Tide!!”  (She brought Pom-poms.) Everyone has found this to be an easy drinker….and the bottle is GONE!!  

If I wanted to buy a ruby, I would want it this beautiful crimson color.  Nice tears, barely stained.  Aromas of Blackberry, Smoke and Maple Syrup.   Flavors of the same plus dark cherry, coffee, black pepper and more maple.  

1000 Stories is Aged in French and American oak and batches are then put in used Bourbon barrels.  

Plenty of happy people here.  Fred, I hope they have it in your Trader Joe’s.  

Happy New Year All.
