Exitus Bourbon Barrel Red Blend 2017
This Bourbon barrel aged red wine is fermented in American stainless steel and then aged for 3 months in Kentucky Bourbon barrels. This bold blend of Zinfandel, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Sauvignon provide a deep ruby colour with aromas of blackberry compote, leather and dusty dark chocolate. Bourbon barrel aging offers aromas of fire-toasted oak, baking spices, caramel and loose leaf tobacco.
On the shelf, you may notice that Exitus doesn’t look like your typical bottle of red wine. That’s because they don’t hide behind tinted glass. Why should you have to wait until your first pour to experience the rich crimson hue of their Bourbon barrel aged blend? Instead of traditional shaded bottles that mask the colour of the wine inside, they insisted on doing things their way. Exitus bucks tradition with a clear glass bottle that showcases what matters most.
