This, coupled with a well-seasoned, rye bourbon, rich with fragrant vanilla, toasted caramel, oranges and oak. Be grateful for this fateful affair between Kentucky and California.

The fruit here is intense and mineral, exploding from the glass with aromas of boysenberry, blackcurrant, crushed rock, and mocha. This is an absolute must for Cabernet enthusiasts.
