Germain-Robin XO is a California Brandy distilled entirely from California-grown grapes, distilled in the classic cognac still known as a Charentais Copper Alembic Still, and aged in French oak from the Limousin region.
Pinot Noir provides a dark cherry character and a rich silky mouthfeel. Colombard grapes add a fresh apple character while Semillon provides richness with peach and apricot notes. The French oak provides vanilla and toast flavors. Texturally the brandy is extremely smooth and has an incredibly long finish.
