his is a very special, limited release of 1000 Stories Bourbon Barrel-Aged Carignan, our first-ever release of Carignan as a single varietal. As soon as these grapes came into the winery, I knew they deserved to stand alone. But that’s not the only special thing about this batch: I worked on this project with my son, Ian, who is not a winemaker but rather a wine enthusiast. There’s a little bit of both of us in this wine: classic and rustic with a little edge. Look for notes of brilliantly racy red and black fruits set to a rich backdrop of toast, herbs and cocoa.
