Tasting Notes
Just when you thought Cabernet Sauvignon couldn’t get any better, along comes Ménage à Trois Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon. This limited release wine is inspired by the very best of California winemaking and traditional Kentucky craft distilling. With each sip, you’ll discover how the process of bourbon barrel aging enhances the Cab’s flavors and texture. Subtle notes of vanilla, brown sugar, smoke and spices meld with the full-bodied flavors of the wine for a truly indulgent experience. Aromas of berry cobbler lead to jammy blueberry and blackberry flavors cloaked in caramel and smoky spice on the palate. Beautifully structured with a rich mouthfeel and lingering finish, our Bourbon Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon takes your relationship with this classic grape to new, thrilling heights.
Winemaker Notes
Our winemakers are legendary thrill seekers, always looking for new ways to tempt the palate. In their quest to create this distinctive twist on classic Cabernet Sauvignon, they sought grapes from select Alexander Valley Vineyards. This spectacular area of California’s North Coast AVA is known for producing fruit with rich, soulful flavors and intense varietal character. To the Cabernet Sauvignon, they added a touch of Merlot and Petite Sirah for balance. Afterwards, the juice was aged for three months in oak barrels previously used to craft 6 year-old Kentucky bourbon, lending a unique, indulgent flavor profile to the wine.
