This is made from Cabernet grapes predominately from Lodi.  The wine is raised in oak barrels and then finished in Bourbon Barrels.  Garnet in color with purple swirls, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose has smoke, tar and slight black cherries.  Medium bodied. Medium tannins.  On the palate, this starts out sweet/ripe with some black cherries.  Plenty of char.  A bit of a cough drop note at the end.  I poured this for some friends who like wine but are not wine geeks and it went over well.  Its certainly different.  I have no idea how this ages so I would drink in the next year or two.  It is a natural match with grilled foods such as a burger.
