Made originally as a single barrel experiment in our Avant Garde series, the first batch sold out before we could hide any away for ourselves, not so this time. Tobacco and plum come through strongest in aroma, complimented by fainter notes of dark chocolate and dark roast coffee. Spice notes (black pepper and cinnamon) from the Cabernet Franc and from the Rye Whiskey barrel itself are dominant in flavor, the barrel also lending leanness to the wine that helps to cut through rich background notes of bitter chocolate and smoked dates.
Pairs well with pot roast and roasted root vegetables, bacon wrapped filet mignon, Elk Tenderloin with Huckleberry sauce, and pecan pie.
