To celebrate Bushmaster’s birthday we started back on the Bourbon Trail. Located in between the Wild Turkey and Four Roses distilleries is one of our favorite Kentucky wineries, Rising Sons.  Of course we had to stop again!

It was during the week so the tasting room at the house was where we would be having our samples.  We share a tasting and conversation with another couple and one of the Rising Sons.  We revisited the following:

  • Chambourcin
  • Baco Noir Reserve
  • Baco Noir
  • Rosé Lady – Diamond with a splash of Concord
  • Diamond Girl
  • Sweet Purr-fection – Blackberry with a hint of Blueberry

You’ll notice my favorites, Cataldo’s Salute and Cabernet Franc weren’t on the list.  As much as I love them, we had stocked up on them only days before. Besides, it was Bushmaster’s birthday after all.

You can see from the list that he tends to prefer the lighter or sweeter varieties.  Rising Sons has something for everyone.

We both like what we have tasted from the Diamond grape and are hoping to obtain some juice this season to try making some of our own.
