The hol­i­days are a time for im­prov­ing on tra­di­tion. Made with grapes grown in coastal Cal­i­for­nia, Ci­gar Bour­bon Bar­relAged Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon ages in French oak bar­rels for a year be­fore mov­ing into heav­ily charred, 100 per­cent Amer­i­can oak bour­bon bar­rels for sev­eral months. The re­sults are big, bold fla­vors and rich lay­ers in­clud­ing aro­mas of black­berry jam, brown sugar, cof­fee, and smoke com­ple­mented by silky tan­nins and a hint of toast. The wine’s struc­ture and solid back­bone make it a good match for meaty dishes like steak, as well as grilled veg­gies. For an easy hol­i­day gift, the beau­ti­fully de­signed bot­tle with red and gold ac­cents is the per­fect pick.
