"Deep, brilliant violet color. Spice-accented cherry, raspberry and candied rose qualities on the nose, plus a hint of vanillin oak in the background. Juicy and energetic on the palate, showing vibrant lift to its bitter cherry, red berry and sweet chewing tobacco flavors. Turns sweeter on the subtly tannic finish, which hangs on with strong, spicy tenacity. Made in 20% new oak."
"In a constant effort to learn and improve our quality, we conduct barrel trials at the winery every harvest. Over the course of time, we have identified specific cooperages, producing barrels that harmonize beautifully with our wines. The 2018 Bunkhouse Cabernet Sauvignon has a slightly higher percentage of new oak than we typically have used in the past. Varietal purity is still a hallmark, with lush, bright red fruit character and a finely grained tannin structure. The barrel program helped us achieve an elegant density, asserting its presence on your palate. Enjoy over the next decade with your favorite grilled fare." -Winery
