Beverage of the Week
Provenance Vineyards DeadEye Red Blend Napa Valley 2016
For lovers of bold Red Blends the Provenance DeadEye is a must-experience wine. This wine is proof-positive that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This unique blend is made with a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 % Petite Sirah, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. See the Beverage of the Week feature
King of Kentucky Barrel No. 8 15 Years Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Brilliant deep cherry wood color. The nose is amazingly harmonious, sweet, and complex even before a water addition. (It’s better after a splash of water.) The nose is filled with scents of charred oak, baked apples and pears, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, and roasted nuts. The palate echoes the nose delivering a dense baked fruit and vanilla cream focused core with generous waves of brown baking spices, toasted coconut, black pepper, and honey. Full-bodied with a complex and dense palate that greatly evolves with water and aeration. Sip slowly as it’s not cheap and there are just over 2,000 bottles available. $250 – 4.5 Stars
Fuso 21 Le Salse Verdicchio di Matelica 2018
Brilliant, light green/gold color. The nose is moderately intense offering scents of spring flowers and nectarine with supporting notes of white peach and wet stones. The palate confirms the nose delivering a ripe orchard fruits-driven core with flavors of green apple, pear, and orange peel. The finish is long and lingering. Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced with a vibrant texture. $14 4 Stars/90 points
