The California Gold Rush signaled a new era thrumming with bravery, bravado and curiosity—characteristics that inspire the rich, bold flavor of our Gold Rush Red. A blend of classic California varietals, including Merlot, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, this layered offering balances ripe, juicy red fruit with heady notes of spice box and char. In signature 1000 Stories fashion, Gold Rush Red was aged in traditional French and American oak, with a portion finished in charred bourbon barrels before the final blend was assembled. Our 2018 Gold Rush Red leads with the velvety-smooth texture of Merlot and the subtle style of Pinot Noir, marrying Merlot’s ripe raspberry and blackberry notes with a thread of cinnamon and nutmeg spice from the Pinot Noir. Petite Sirah lends an inky purple hue and pleasing minerality to the blend, while Zinfandel rounds out the wine’s luscious core of berry and spice. This red blend culminates in a bourbon-barrel finish of dried herbs and charred vanilla.

Region: California

California as a wine producing region has grown in size and importance considerably over the past couple of centuries, and today is the proud producer of more than ninety percent of the United States' wines. Indeed, if California was a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, with a vast range of vineyards covering almost half a million acres. The secret to California's success as a wine region has a lot to do with the high quality of its soils, and the fact that it has an extensive Pacific coastline which perfectly tempers the blazing sunshine it experiences all year round. The winds coming off the ocean cool the vines, and the natural valleys and mountainsides which make up most of the state's wine regions make for ideal areas in which to cultivate a variety of high quality grapes.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
