2017 The Federalist Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon

The Federalist

California

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.


Viticulture

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.


Recommendation

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.
