Bourbon barrel-aged zin is one of my new favorite obsessions. Zinfandel is one of my favorite wine varietals, and this is so far my favorite zin discovery. A perfect balance between jammy fruit, spice, tannin, and acidity, 1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel-Aged Zinfandel is a steal for the quality you get.
