Harvested in the cool morning hours from valley floor vineyards across Napa Valley, the grapes were hand sorted and underwent extended maceration before aging in a combination of bourbon and American oak barrels. Bourbon barrels have a heavier toast which imparts a light smoky note on the nose and highlights the characteristics that are synonymous with the spirit.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark purple in the glass and opens with aromas of black cherry, blackberry and currants with notes of incense and a waft of smoked meat. Full-bodied, the textured palate is rich with flavors of
brown sugar, sweet vanilla, baking spice and hints of toasted oak. Balanced with fine-grained tannins, the finish is savory and lingers.
