Professional Wine Reviews for 1000 Stories Gold Rush Red Bourbon Barrel Aged 2016

Winery
The California Gold Rush was a period of courage, bravado, and curiosity. It was with these characteristics in mind that we created 1000 Stories Gold Rush Red. Grapes chosen from the golden valleys and hills of California were combined to create this bold, adventurous testament to that intrepid spirit. We selected a combination of new and used bourbon barrels for this Seasonal Release. This rich wine presents flavors of black fruit, cloves, pepper and vanilla. Blends of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Petite Sirah.

Winery 1000 Stories

Region: California

When it comes to New World wine regions, it is widely agreed that many of the finest wines are grown and produced in California. The long stretches of coastline and the valleys and mountainsides which come off them are ideal areas for vine cultivation, and for over a century now, wineries have found a perfect home in the hot, dry state, with many of the wines produced here going on to reach world class status. The state is greatly helped by the brisk oceanic winds which cool the otherwise hot and dry vineyards, which hold mineral rich soils covering vast areas and featuring many established wineries. The state is split into four main regions, the largest by far being the central valley which stretches over three hundred miles in length.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.
