Aging of Wine in Bourbon Barrels
We have all experienced the difference oak has on our wines. Traditionally, adding flavors of smoke, vanilla, spices, cloves, dried fruit, toasted almond just to name a few, but what about bourbon barrel influences on wine?
How does the flavor change when Scotch barrels are used vs. Whiskey barrels? Rye vs wheat? Why are Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel the wines most experimented with using this aging method? and yes...why Age Wine in Bourbon Barrels?
Join us as we find out...
