Stave & Steel
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Aging four months in charred, Kentucky Bourbon Barrels, creates this refined, full-bodied wine with bold fruit flavors. Dark cherry, blackberry, and plum enrich the palate, providing excellent structure and generous tannins. The bourbon influences add notes of vanilla, caramel and spice that lead into a long, smooth finish.
A great choice for your next dinner party, we suggest trying this wine paired with Beef Stew, Steak and Potatoes or a nice Blue Cheese Crusted Ribeye!
Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 100 Proof 750ml
November's Bourbon of the Month delivers rich wood notes, warm vanilla pound cake, maple sugar, fresh roasted almonds and fleur de sel caramel notes, creating a gourmet banquet of delicious aromas to entice your palate!
Enjoy this versatile beverage straight up, with a splash, or in your favorite cocktail!
