Just Fine Wine and Winexpert are excited to introduce Limited Release Eclipse Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel Cabernet from Dry Creek Valley, California.
It is a tall order to follow in the large footsteps of previous Eclipse Limited Releases such as Forza, Bravado, and Nocturnal, as those wines all proved to be exceptionally popular with our winemakers. We expect nothing less with Limited Release Eclipse Bourbon Barrel Zin Cab – this wine is going to be a huge hit! Bourbon Barrel aging has been an explosive trend in the commercial wine industry recently and has seen heavy hitters like Mondavi and Apothic entering the fray. As always, Just Fine Wine is happy to offer our clients the opportunity to enjoy this massively popular style…but at a better price than commercial wine and liquor stores!
A bold red blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet, that is taken to another level with the presence of authentic Kentucky Bourbon Barrel oak chips, is ready to bottle in just 8 short weeks. This wine kit produces approximately 23L of finished wine (roughly thirty 750ml bottles) and is priced at $225 On-Premise or $175 Kit-Only. Available now, contact Just Fine Wine to get yours today!
Eclipse Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel Cabernet – Sonoma Dry Creek Valley, USA
|REGION: Dry Creek Valley – Sonoma County, California, USA
Dry Creek Valley is a premium wine-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 vines were removed. You won’t find any traffic lights in Dry Creek Valley, but you will find fertile soil and ideal growing conditions.THE WINE: A robust blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon 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 a hint of caramel provide for a long, smooth finish. Don’t like Bourbon? Don’t worry. Your wine is not going to taste like whiskey. The Bourbon Barrel Oak Chips are there to elevate and enhance (NOT overpower) the amazing blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet.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.
