The Mendocino Zinfandel vineyards are located on the 26 miles of benchland that stretches from the Redwood Valley south to the Sanel Valley. One of the keys to making great Zinfandel is picking the grapes very ripe, which brings big raspberry and black pepper spice flavors to the forefront. Each individual lot is made separately and then aged in American and French oak wine barrels before finishing the aging in bourbon barrels. 1000 Stories is dedicated to incorporating the gentle impact of new bourbon oak barrels into the Zinfandel wine, with its charred vanilla and dried herb flavors. The new bourbon barrels from Independent Stave Company give the same impact as a wine barrel, but with a unique flavor profile.
