Winemaker Quincy Steele's experiences working in Argentina inform this wine and its style. Native yeast fermentation, extended macerations, and cooler fermentation temperatures give him as much control as possible with respect to extracting.

At end of barrel aging small percentages of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, are blended into this Malbec to dial in its balance.

Created by Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson, Angel's Envy is worth coveting. Aged up to 6 years in charred white oak barrels and finished in ruby port wine casks, Angel's Envy is an artisan's masterpiece unlike any other bourbon.Even after being named a “Living Legend' by Wine and Spirits Magazine, Lincoln wasn't content to rest on his laurels. He was always a malcontent. But then, you don't spend 40 years defining the spirits industry and earn an inaugural spot in the Bourbon Hall of Fame without a few unconventional ideas. Angel's Envy was his last, great endeavor.Angel's Envy is what happens when 200 years of tradition meet an independent master craftsman's instinct to improve. It's a total return to craft first, hand-blended batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time. Our bourbon starts with the finest local ingredients distilled in micro-batches and aged in American oak. We personally taste every barrel throughout each step to ensure that the spirit meets Lincoln's malcontent legacy.This would be enough for any other premium bourbon, but Lincoln had other ideas for his creation. That's why we finish every batch in ruby port wine casks. There's no set time for the process. It's only Angel's Envy when we say it is. The ruby port wine finish adds subtle nuance without ruining the integrity of the bourbon. The end result is a rich, exceptionally smooth and rare bourbon. Sin aside, we work every day to inspire envy, even if it takes a little longer. Liquor STRAIGHT WHISKEY

We have been dreaming of and contemplating how we would produce our reserve Cabernet Sauvignon for years. Through trial and error, educated guesses, and hypotheses we discovered that barrel fermentation and flash detente were keys to uncovering what we had long been searching for. Our goal was to produce a wine with incredible structure, depth of fruit, and complete oak integration, without being overdone. This Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and complex, but still has incredible finesse. We believe our reserve cabernet can go up against some of big boys in game, but don't take our word for it and decide for yourself! Drink. Think. Hypothesis!
