In the spirit of American craftsmanship, this unique Cabernet Sauvignon represents the bold, American tradition of aging in charred bourbon barrels. Sourced from Lodi in California, The Federalist Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon intertwines bold fruit with rich, toasted vanilla and spice notes with a smoky caramel finish.
Different blocks were fermented separately to preserve ideal characteristics of each. Each block spends an average of 12 days on the skins. Aged 6 months in American oak and for a second 6 months in Bourbon barrles.
This full bodied wine would pair well with heavy, robust dishes, meat stews or pasta. It's also the perfect wine to serve with char-grilled steak thrown on the barbecue and served with a simple green side salad.
