And if there was a wine to legitimize the Bourbon Barrel aging trend... So this guy was pretty surprising! Sweet fruit palate, medium to light body, quite lighter than expected, but bourbon flavors explode on the palate. Vanilla, oak, sweet woody flavors, caramel, molasses. On the ultra new world side for sure, but damn if this wasn't an awesome wine for the price.

Live the oak barrel wine. Had it at a wine tasting and bought it. Very nice drinkable.

A little smoky for my taste. Rich flavor with a warm finish. More tannins and not much fruit flavor in the finish. Would pair well with steak.

Chocolate color goes with hints of dark chocolate in a bold, not for timid big cab. Black cherry & plum frame this smooth drinker. Ready to pair with hearty meats or rich salmon on a cool autumn evening.

Excellent wine for the price. I had never had a wine aged in bourbon barrels, and I did not know what to expect but I was surprised. Very smooth. You get the bourbon on the nose but extremely smooth.

Good full body with a jammish character. Not overly fruity, dry. Hint of oak and bourbon at the end of the taste
