Southern Belle Red Blend Aged In Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrels 2015
Southern Belle is a project between Dan Philips of Grateful Palate fame and Julian Van Winkle of Pappy Van Winkle. The two created the idea of aging deep, lusty red wine in aged Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels and Southern Belle was born. The wine is a blend of Monastrell and Syrah from the region of Murcia in Spain. Deep blackberry fruit mingles with Bourbon-laced notes of vanilla and toffee along with chocolate covered cherries. Soft, rich and jammy with a long finish. Serve with bourbon-glazed ribs, pork or steaks.
