Medium dark ruby hue. Aromas of oak, plum, raspberry, strawberry, and vanilla. Medium body, medium tannins, medium-plus acidity. Bit of alcohol heat on the backend. Nevertheless, very approachable and soft for a Cabernet Sauvignon. Bourbon-barrel aging rounds out the tannins and brings its share of red fruit and vanilla to the palate.

Good as a cocktail without food and with a meal. Great full body flavor.

As a bourbon lover, this caught my eye. It did not disappoint at all. Fantastic light oak flavor in a full, acidy cabernet. Excellent!
