They craft this richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon with California grapes picked at the peak of ripeness in their coastal vineyards. Adding a twist to traditional barrel aging, select lots of the blend are aged in a mix of new and used bourbon barrels. The new barrels give the wine its deep undertones of toasted oak. The used barrels, selected from a renowned Kentucky distillery, exude notes of vanilla and dried herbs, hinting at the fine bourbon that once graced these casks. The result is a bold, flavourful wine, unlike any other Cabernet.
Tasting Notes... Layered and complex, their Bourbon Barrel aged Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with aromas of blackberry cobbler, graham cracker, brown sugar, milk chocolate, coffee and smoke. A palate of blueberry pie, praline, sweet vanilla custard, caramel and mocha is framed by soft, chewy tannins and a hint of toasted oak on the lingering finish.
