It is hard to believe it had taken us until the end of July to visit The Little Kentucky River Winery. Our son is home from college and working so instead of having to juggle two schedules and transportation, this summer we have had three. He was off work early this particular Saturday so once we got him home, we were able to escape and enjoy live music and wine on a beautiful night at one of our favorite outdoor venues.
The Troubadours of Divine Bliss were playing and we had two new releases of wine to try.
I loved their new formulation of Kentucky Rain, which is now a Pinot Gris. It was nicely balanced, tasty, and refreshing. In fact, it almost tempted me away from my usual selection.
The new Smokehouse Red is a Syrah and delightfully smoky with a good amount of wood which was quite to my liking and truly befitting of the name.
Bushmaster was not such a fan of the Syrah and moved on to the Plum Sinful and Miss Bessie’s Pick.
Ultimately, we agreed upon their 1812 Cabernet Franc.
We settled into their comfy over-sided Adirondack chairs to enjoy the music, the wine, and the perfect evening.
My legs were a bit too short to reach the rock wall so Bushmaster came to my rescue with the cooler from our car.
A while later, we were joined by a small guest, who too, seemed to be enjoying his summer evening.
I wondered if he might be a prince but then remembered my prince was the one who had retrieved the cooler earlier.
Thank you to Teresa and David for another enjoyable evening! We are hoping it doesn’t take us so long to return the next time!
