2017 Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon - Lodi bottle shot
Four Virtues
Bourbon Barrel Aged

Cabernet Sauvignon

Lodi

2017

  • Appellation: 100% Lodi
  • Aging: Aged with French and American oak, then finished in heavily charred new American oak Bourbon barrels 1-3 months
  • Alcohol: 15.8%
Olive Branch
An intense, full-bodied wine with flavors of dark berries, sweet oak and spice. A smoky finish with firm, yet refined tannins. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, cherry and dark chocolate, with notes of cinnamon, roasted coffee beans and toasty oak.

Vineyard Notes

Heavily charred new Bourbon oak barrels impart nuanced layers of caramel, vanilla and toasty oak to the wine’s naturally intense dark berry character. The result is a robust, deliciously complex and silky smooth Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon.

Production Notes

A renowned wine writer said the best wines must exhibit four virtues: a distinctive style and quality unlike any other; a unique expression of origin (terroir); an intense but not overpowering flavor; and satisfying to the palate and intellect- in other words, be a wine worth talking about! Our winemaking team has passionately crafted this debut vintage with these virtues in mind.
