Vermouth is not just an afterthought in a Martini. Vermouth can be the STAR of your summer drink. If you have a good bottle of Vermouth, just pour it on the rocks with some club soda and an orange slice and you will be surprised how refreshing this drink is!

Breckenridge Whiskey PX Cask Finish

Breckenridge Whiskey PX Cask Finish...$48.99
From the Andalusia province of Spain, a luscious dessert wine is produced from the shriveled raisins of the Pedro Ximenez (PX) grape.This dense syrupy wine is aged in ancient solera barrels for decades before release. We acquired a selection of retired PX barrels from a solera hundreds of years old and filled them with our rich spicy Bourbon Whiskey. Left to bask in these ripe fruity vessel for eight weeks, our Whiskey emerged with complex layers of Fig Compote, Orange Marmalade, and Licorice to complement the Sweet Oak and Vanilla character of our world renowned Bourbon Whiskey. Enjoy!

Well-rounded aromas of fig compote, almond butter, and black licorice lead us to rich full-bodied flavors of orange marmalade and Madagascar vanilla bean.Long finish of sweet oak and ripe sultanas with perfectly balanced heat.

Uncle Nearest 1856 Tennessee Whiskey

Uncle Nearest 1856 Tennessee Whiskey....$44.99
Uncle Nearest 1856 has a caramel color with a beautiful deep golden hue. Baled hay and pumpkin seeds on the nose with subtle notes of ripe stone fruit and caramel corn. Bold and spicy upfront then mellows with sweet caramel and maple, like biting into an oatmeal raisin cookie. The finish is long and rich. It lingers pleasantly sweet on the palate with notes of vanilla after the spice dissipates.

2015 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

2015 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley...$27.99
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and burly, but also quite pleasing for a young Mt. Veeder Cabernet. Inky blue/purplish fruit, licorice, lavender, bacon fat spice and licorice fill out the wine's mid-weight frame nicely. Plush and unctuous through to the finish, Mt. Veeder's Cabernet Sauvignon is a real overachiever in this vintage, as the extra kick of volume gives the wine an unusual level of opulence that works nicely to balance some of the more imposing structural elements in the wine.
Rated 93/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

A very pretty and layered young cabernet with blackcurrant and berry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, fresh and focused. A lovely finish. Hard not to drink this now. You'd want to catch the vibrant fruit now, but it will be better in 2020.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling
