Eclipse Bourbon Barrel (Zinfandel Cabernet) - Dry Creek Valley, California
A robust blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet enhanced by the addition of oak chips from authentic Kentucky Bourbon barrels. Inviting toasty notes on the nose lead to flavours of jammy blackberry, cherry, and plum. Bourbon nuances of toasted vanilla, spice and hint of caramel provide for a long smooth finish.
Dry Creek Valley is a premium wine grape growing region in northern Sonoma County, California. World-renowned for its Zinfandel, blocks of old-vines mark the area, many having survived prohibition when many wines were removed.
For food pairing, keep it casual with gourmet burgers topped with roasted tomatoes, red peppers and caramelized onions or take it up a notch with well-marbled grilled rib steak and sautéed mushrooms.
