Bourbon aged wines are the fastest growing flavor category. Exitus is a bourbon barrel aged red wine that’s fermented in American stainless steel and then aged for 3 months in Kentucky bourbon barrels. It’s a bold blend of mostly Zinfandel, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.  The barrels for Exitus get a NO. 4 “char” also known as the “alligator char,” which gives the interior of the wood the rough, shiny texture of alligator skin.  Charring is the process that sets fire to the interior of barrels and creates a layer of charred wood.  The result is a wine that bucks tradition.
