Our signature and best selling wine, Bourbon Barrel Merlot embodies the Red Fox Cellars mantra to be respectful but unbound by tradition. Bright, red fruits (plums, dark cherries) give way to earthy tobacco notes. These characteristics pay homage to traditional cold climate Merlots, while breaking free in aroma and finish. Having spent anywhere from 30 days to several months in bourbon barrels from various Colorado Distilleries, this Merlot’s aroma is wrought with bourbon character- expect vanilla, baking spices, and oak. On the palate, the bourbon character is very subtle. Just a hint of spicy oak firmness and vanilla lends a romantic touch of bourbon flavor, and makes this wine truly unique.
