This Cabernet Sauvignon blends the craftsmanship of California winemaking with the Southern tradition of Bourbon Whiskey aging, resulting in an incredibly bold sensory expression. Deep, rich ruby red in color, it opens with concentrated aromas of blackberry cobbler, ripe dark berries, graham cracker, brown sugar, vanilla, milk chocolate, and toasty oak with notes of coffee and smoke. Flavors of ripe blackberry cobbler, blueberry pie, praline, sweet vanilla custard, brown sugar, caramel, and mocha, coffee, and smoke follow. Soft, chewy tannins and toasted oak round the wine out with a long, lush finish. A superb accompaniment to bourbonglazed grilled ribs, a charcuterie board, hearty pasta dishes, strong cheeses, good friends, and outrageous stories.WINEMAKING:
We start our unique process with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes carefully picked at the peak of ripeness from Monterey County vineyards. The wine is then aged and blended to deliver exceptional fruit flavors and complexity. Next, a portion of the blend is selected to be aged for an additional three months in a combination of new and used Bourbon Whiskey barrels. Our new barrels give the wine a deep, rich, toasty flavor. The used barrels, from a world-renowned Kentucky distillery, add vanilla aromas and dried herbal notes.
