Zinfandel barrel aged (8weeks) Sazerac
This was from last night at Clive's
Shawn has been working on this for 8 week +
He told us that it took him months to get ahold of a barrel, 7 Months I think. He put the word out looking for a barrel with the only requirement that it be red wine. He got a Zinfandel. He said they were importing grapes from California and barreling it somewhere here on Vancouver Island.
How did it taste you ask? well..
first I notices the smell: cinnamon
The taste was "smooth" nicely sweet and nicely bitter. I don't know what the recipe was. It was busy and I didn't get to ask.
Try it while supplies last!!
