Stave & Steel Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles, 2014
Bourbon barrel aged. Age brings wisdom. Bourbon barrel-aging brings boldness. Our winemaker masterfully ages 100% of our premium Cabernet Sauvignon in rich bourbon barrels for 4 months. The bourbon-drenched staves, bound by rugged steel rivets, create the distinctive nose of a finely made bourbon, and the wine delivers a smooth, elegant texture with a hint of tannins. Subtle spice meets signature cabernet flavors of vanilla and ripe, dark berries. This is traditional winemaking, reinvented. Wine in bourbon barrels. Indeed. Alc. 14.5% by vol.
