Protest is a Sonoma Valley Red blend wine that finishes aging in craft Rye Whisky barrels for roughly 45 days. The Rye whiskey aromas are uniquely subtle, and meld well with the silky, dense-fruit 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, but its finish has transformed into a different animal, with the Rye whiskey aromas and tastes. More delicious chewy, silky black fruits, with intense blackberry and equally intense raspberry jam highlights. A perfect combination of aromas and flavors intertwine into an decidedly unique expression of Red Wine blending. It invokes a pleasantly, pipe smoke filled room, with old classic novels lying about.
