1000 Stories Zinfandel
The winemaker from 1000 Stories selected a flavourful Zinfandel base from coastal Paso Robles (29%) for this nuanced blend. Fruit from the celebrated Paso region—often compared to France’s Rhône Valley, renowned for full-bodied, spicy reds—lend Batch 47 ripe, soulful notes of cherry licorice and black pepper.
Dry-farmed, head-trained Zinfandel vines from heritage Mendocino County vineyards (26%) add depth, classic structure and red fruit notes to the batch, while vineyards in Lodi and the Sierra Foothills contribute rich texture, weight and an energizing mineral quality. A touch of Petite Sirah (15%) rounds out the blend, adding layered brown spice aromas, firm tannic structure and intense color.
