Thousands of years of winemaking trials and error have led to oak becoming the standard wood for barrel aging wines. The cooper can control the "toast" levels of the barrel to light, medium, or dark. Oak barrels are used at different levels of toasting so winemakers can achieve the flavors, texture, and aromatics desired in the finished wine.
Barrel Burner wines take the best the vineyard has to offer and complement the wine with alluring notes of toasted oak. The grapes come from Paso Robles, one of the most esteemed winegrowing regions in California.
A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
