Stave & Steel Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
AT STAVE & STEEL, WE CELEBRATE THE AMERICAN HERITAGE OF INNOVATION AND CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH A WINEMAKING APPROACH THAT’S BOLD AND UNCONVENTIONAL. Progress is always our first priority-which is why we’ve embarked on a new barrel-aging experience. We begin by sourcing American oak bourbon barrels. The wooden staves are toasted and charred prior to aging to enhance the wine’s natural aromas and add flavor dimension, imparting distinct bourbon characteristics into our wine. Their staves are saturated with bold, lingering flavors that merge artfully into our varietals as they age. Each wooden stave delicately steeps the wine and creates an elegant fusion of flavor. Open a bottle to experience a breakthrough in winemaking tradition. We’re just getting started…
100% of our Cabernet Sauvignon was aged four months in charred, Kentucky Bourbon barrels, creating a refined, full-bodied wine with bold fruit flavors. Dark cherry, blackberry, and plum enrich the palate, providing excellent structure and generous tannins. The Bourbon influences add notes of vanilla, caramel, and spice that lead into a long, smooth finish.
Pair this wine with a traditional Cajun jambalaya or cinnamon chocolate torte.

Wine EnthusiastThe bourbon barrel aging of this bottling is not immediately apparent. Indeed, it is quite herbal on the nose rather than caramelly, with dill prevalent amidst the black plum. The palate packs wet oregano, thyme and licorice against juicy red berries.
