We caught up with winemaker, Glenn Hugo, a couple of weeks ago in the cellar and he gave us a quick education on the use of oak barrels from several different coopers when aging our mountain designate Cabernet Sauvignon, including Mt. Veeder. This is the first video in a series, so check back soon for the next lesson. Here, Glenn introduces Taransaud, one of the more expensive barrels in Girard’s arsenal. Have any questions about oak or aging? Let us know in the comment sections and we’ll have Glenn give a response!
