Whisky Infused Cabernet Zinfandel Syrah Wine Recipe Kit
In a Winexpert first, juice for this limited release was pre-oaked in-house, steeping for several months with whisky oak chips specially sourced from Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery and Distillery. During this 6-month steep, the juice absorbs flavors and tannin from the whisky oak, adding roundness to the body, elevating tannin, and infusing it with nuanced sweet spice, brown sugar, and vanilla character. These whisky-influenced sweet notes round out a bold wine rich with flavors of blackcurrant, jammy wildberry, and plum, underlaid with mocha, spice, and smoky toasted notes.
Sweetness: Dry | Body: Full | Oak: Heavy | Alcohol: 14% ABV
More about Winexpert Private Reserve Infusion Blend:
Cab Syrah (Shiraz) blends are common, but the addition of Zinfandel is a California creation. These popular varietals thrive in Lodi, which tends to grow softer, more fruit-forward reds. Cab brings its signature blackcurrant flavors, ample acid, and tannin. Zinfandel adds jammy berries, with Syrah contributing plum and pepper. Together they make a bold wine with abundant berry flavors and rich tannin, making it an ideal base for something a little extra.
Cab Syrah Food pairing:
Try aged cheeses, chicken mole, or bison burgers topped with roasted red pepper and caramelized onions. A great option for beef brisket, spicy sausage, or black bean chili.
Includes bottle labels.
This pre-order wine kit was released Late July 2023.
*Whisky oak is not included. INFUSION is steeped with whisky oak chips prior to being added to the craft winemaking kit, allowing the juice to absorb flavor from the wood over the course of several months, enhancing its profile. Though this product does contain oak chips and cubes, no extra whisky oak is included in this kit.
