Toast the Derby with Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon & Giveaway

2 May

Will you be watching the Kentucky Derby at the track or in the comfort of your home? Have you picked your horses? Wherever you are you will want to have good food and drinks on hand. 

I’ve got a wine that you absolutely must try. The new: Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine offers complex, rich fruit flavor with aromas of toasty vanilla and brown sugar. This is one of the first Bourbon barrel aged wines produced in the U.S.

 This special Bourbon barrel aged wine originates in the coastal vineyards of Monterey County, CA, where the region’s dynamic, geologic past brings forth fruit with an unmistakable sense of place. Grapes are picked at the peak of ripeness, after which the wine is aged and blended to deliver exceptional fruit flavors and complexity. Unique to this wine, a portion of the blend is aged for an additional three months, using a combination of new and used Kentucky Bourbon barrels, creating one of the first Bourbon barrel aged wines produced in the United States.

 Bourbon barrels are 100% American oak barrels that have been charred to help impart deep toasty flavors and hints of vanilla and brown sugar. Cabernet Sauvignon is particularly suited for Bourbon barrel aging because its intensely rich fruit character isn’t overwhelmed by the flavors of the charred casks. The wine is rich, weighty, and full bodied on the palette, and the 2014 vintage delivers robust flavors of black cherry and blackberry.

 The Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon will be released in limited-production and is available nationally now. Suggested retail price is $13.99 for 750mL.

I know what I will be sipping on come May 7th. I see a fruit and cheese platter served with my wine. Would you also like to try a bottle? I was given an extra bottle to give away to one of my readers.
