Aromas of sweet cherries, honeycomb, and briar come bursting through the glass. At first sip loads of strawberries, blackberries and cherry pie sweep across the palate with a medium tannin and zesty freshness!
Chronic Cellars was started by Josh and Jake Beckett in 2004. The Beckett's have extensive experience working at their family winery, Peachy Canyon. With Chronic their aim was to produce fun but serious wines targeted at those of a casual lifestyle. Their first release was in 2008. Their wines are a true reflection of what the Paso Robles wine region has to offer. Every bottle showcases beautiful fruit grown in local vineyards by meticulous growers who recognize and share the same desire for high quality. They use the best grapes, barrels, equipment and anything they can get their hands on to produce enjoyable delicious wines. The results speak for themselves, Chronic has sold out every vintage since their initial release. In fact we at Vision Wine Brands were put on a two year waiting list as they expanded their production to meet the demand for the wines. In our opinion it has been worth the wait and are delighted to welcome the latest addition to our California portfolio.
Visual : Pillory with garnet edging.Nose : Complex predominance of mineral notes in a background of cherry jam combined with a subtle blend of roasted and smoked background.Palate : Powerful but with a step of silky and well-balanced tannins that make up a final that feels fatty with mineral and candied aftertaste.

The California Gold Rush was a period of courage, bravado and curiosity. It was with these characteristics in mind that we crafted Gold Rush Red. Grapes chosen from the golden hills and valleys of California were blended to create this bold, adventurous testament to that intrepid spirit. Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel form the backbone of this wine. Petite Sirah and Merlot were then meticulously selected to add complexity to this intense blend. Each lot began its journey in traditional French and American wine barrels. Then, in true 1000 Stories fashion, winemaker Bob Blue divided the blend, finishing it in a combination of new and used bourbon barrels. The result is a signature 1000 Stories profile: a bold wine with intriguing notes of dried herbs, charred vanilla and a pleasant hint of smoke.
