Protest Red Blend Aged In Rye Whiskey Barrels 750ml
$61.99 price per bottle
Wine maker notes Chateau Diana’s grand experiment in melding Whisky and Wine. Sounds strange you say? On the contrary, it is epic! This is a Sonoma Valley Red blend wine aged in craft Rye Whisky barrels. The Protest is a dedication and an attitude. The Rye whiskey aromas are uniquely subtle, and meld well with the silky, dense-fruit Syrah with hints of cigar box and fresh leaf tobacco. The intense, dusty-black fruit flavors have a warm intermingling of the Rye whiskey flavors. It tastes like a sumptuous wine that has transformed into a different animal with the Rye whiskey aromas and tastes. The flavor extends with more delicious chewy, bacon-fat tones, with deep blackberry and black raspberry jam highlights. Protest invokes a pleasant, pipe smoke-filled room with old classic novels lying about.
