Carmin After Dark 2016
Bourbon Barrel Aged for 6 months. 2016 Cabernet Franc.
Mindblowing! Bold. Favorful. Aged for 6 months in a barrel from Four Roses, this limited release wine is layered and complex, this wine leaps from the glass with aromas of molasses, caramel, blackberry cobbler, graham cracker, brown sugar, milk chocolate, coffee and smoke. A palate of blueberry pie, praline, sweet vanilla custard, caramel and mocha is framed by soft, chewy tannins and a hint of toasted oak on the lingering finish. 22 Cases.
Estate Grown and Bottled
This is my first Bourbon Barrel Aged wine. I was lucky enough to acquire a barrel from Four Roses Bourbon, Kentucky and had a vision that my 2016 Cabernet Franc would be enhanced by the heavy toasted, bourbon laden aging. I wish I had more barrels of it! Of course, now that I have been inspired by this vintage, there will be more in the future!
