Opulence is a bottle art painting for Sapwood Cellars - Columbia, MD
The painting is a abstract work portraying the flavors and ingredients of the brew.
With each step of the production, we saturated Opulence with rich dark fruit flavors. The base of toasted and caramelized European malts deliver fig and plum. A red wine strain enhances the jammy aroma from the dried sour cherries. Aging in Bourbon and Pinot Noir barrels adds oaky depth. A final infusion of fresh sour cherry aroma comes from Baugher's Orchard (Westminster, MD) fresh sour cherries. Vanilla and coconut aromatics derived from the charred American oak provides a unique accompaniment to the cherry and almond from the fruit. Firm acidity and fresh leather aromatics offer balance.
