Fetzer 1000 Stories Zinfandel 
“Years ago, when I was just starting out as a winemaker, it was almost unheard of to get French oak wine barrels and American oak barrels were for whiskey, not wine. But we still needed barrels to age our wine, so we purchased new and used bourbon barrels. Today, Anerican and French oak wine barrels are so commonplace, so the inspriation for 1,000 stories is a nod to the way things were."
Hedonistic, juicy Zinfandel from Lodi (24%) brings round tannins and opulent notes of dark fruit. Attractive flavors of red licorice and brown spice usher into the blend courtesy of Paso Robles vineyards (19%), while a touch of soulful Lake County Petite Sirah completes the wine, contributing depth of color and profound suggestions of black pepper.
