Stave & Steel Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
This Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is then added and aged for four months, imparting additional layers of complexity, depth and flavor. The result is a refined, full-bodied Cabernet with bold fruit flavors. Dark cherry, blackberry and plum enrich the palate, providing excellent structure and generous tannins. The bourbon influences add notes of vanilla, caramel, and spice that lead into a long, smooth finish.
Progress is always their first priority—which is why they’ve embarked on a new barrel-aging experience. They begin by sourcing American oak bourbon barrels. The wooden staves are toasted and charred prior to aging to enhance the wine’s natural aromas and add flavor dimension, imparting distinct bourbon characteristics into their wine. Their staves are saturated with bold, lingering flavors that merge artfully into their varietals as they age. Each wooden stave delicately steeps the wine and creates an elegant fusion of flavor.
