2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (bourbon barrel aged)

83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot 


One of the first new releases is Bluemont’s 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon “Bourbon Barrel Aged” red wine. This wine’s journey began to take shape after aging in traditional French and American barrels for 6 months. Tasting through each barrel showed an interesting richness with strong notes of vanilla, spice and a subtle sweetness. Having worked with bourbon whiskey barrels in the past I thought it would be fun to try and bring out these vanilla and spice notes a little more by aging a portion of the wine in bourbon barrels. After 8 months of additional aging, the final blend was put together and spent an additional 2 months in freshly emptied bourbon whiskey barrels. The idea here was not to overwhelm the Cabernet Sauvignon wine but to enhance and introduce some new flavors and aromas. The result is an easy-drinking wine with notes of vanilla, currants, and cocoa with a unique depth and complexity. Allow the wine to warm slightly to release more of the bourbon notes.


Pairs well with smoked dishes and cheeses, grilled food or  rich meats such as beef wellington
