This French oak barrel lifts up dark fruit, balancing and supporting with light toast, hints of vanilla and savory tones. Excellent mid-palate texture is underscored by high fruit volume, offering added dimension. To emphasize fruit and terroir, Cool Climate Series barrels are exclusively crafted with 36 month, extra fine grain oak as part of T.W. Boswell’s Special Reserve premium wood selection.
