The blend consists of zinfandel, petit verdot, cabernet sauvignon, petite sirah, and merlot.
Fermented in stainless steel and then aged for three months in Kentucky bourbon barrels, Exitus has a deep ruby color and aromas of blackberry compote, leather, and dusty dark chocolate, the company says. Bourbon barrel aging offers aromas of fire toasted oak, baking spice, caramel, and loose-leaf tobacco.
Exitus is now available nationwide.
The suggested retail price is $25.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
