Exitus / Red Blend Aged in Bourbon Barrels / 750ML

Geography: California, United States
Alcohol by volume: 15.9%
Our bourbon barrel aged red wine is fermented in American stainless steel and then aged for 3 months in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This bold blend of Zinfandel, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon provide a deep ruby color with aromas of black berry compote, leather and dusty dark chocolate. Bourbon barrel aging offers aromas of fire toasted oak, baking spice, caramel and loose leaf tobacco.
Bold and unconventional, Exitus is our answer to the monotony of boring, forgettable wines. Crafted for the adventurous drinker looking for a novel experience, we solicited the signature smoky notes of classic Kentucky Bourbon barrels to turn up the heat on our big, Zin-based wine. Mature using methods previously only reserved for top shelf spirits, the result is a rich, complex statement wine that bucks tradition - because rules are meant to be broken.
