Robust Californian Cabernet from one of the regions finest producers. This is a firmly concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon with sweetly ripe blackcurrant and cassis fruit on a fine-structured, powerful and linear palate. A portion of the fruit is aged in bourbon whisky barrels which imparts a rich texture and spicy notes. Excellent.
The winery writes "Layered and complex, our 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."
