Member Review by RogerVE:

Nice wine for the price. The rasberry is pleasant not overwhelming. Tannins are surprisingly smooth.

Alexander Hamilton was a man of many curiosities and talents. In his spirit, this classic Zinfandel embraces the uniquely American tradition of aging in charred bourbon barrels. 94% Zinfandel, 3% Petite Sirah and 3% Merlot sourced from Mendocino County. Different blocks were fermented separately to preserve ideal characteristics of each. Each block spends an average of 12 days on the skins. Then the wine aged 6 months in American oak barrels and finished 6 months in charred bourbon barrels. The Federalist Bourbon Barrel-Aged Zinfandel shows intense raspberry, black fruit, smoke, caramel and vanilla with a touch of clove spice and rich caramel. The wine lingers on a lengthy finish. Like Hamilton it's a one-of-a-kind!
