If you love bourbon and wine - this is for you. You start with the wine and it’s deep flavors and at the end of the sip you feel that bourbon come through. One of my new favs!

This is a translucent violet with very distinct Zin nose. Thin on the tongue but big alcohol, dark fruit jammy-ness with some sweetness that hints of cherries. The expected Zin pepperiness is there as well. Not much astringency, so a light finish. This may be easier drinking that it should be at 15%. I’m on the line regarding the value for the price.

Drinks like a Pinot Noir. The bourbon smooths it out. Yum.

Smells like a pastry shop, and then like leather. Black cherry color.

Aged in Bourbon barrels for 6 months. Lots of great smoky flavour.
