WHISKEY RELOAD ~ UNCLE NEAREST “1856″ TENNESSEE WHISKEY ~ CV MEMBERS SAVE $$$

TIME TO RELOAD ON “CV WINE & SPIRITS” BEST-SELLING WHISKEYSINCE OPENING!!!

IMG_25391-9900000000079e3c

UNCLE NEAREST 1856 PREMIUM WHISKEY (Tennessee)

$57.50/btl or CV CLUB MEMBERS – $51.75/btl

Screen Shot 2019-04-10 at 3.58.04 PM

We received our first bottle of UNCLE NEAREST during the holiday season last year and was told, “THIS IS ONE YOU HAVE TO TRY!”  So, we did.  And again.  And again.  Then, the bottle was gone (not all in one day).  Not having seen this whiskey on the shelves at our regular spirit stock-up locations, we knew this would be an absolute MUST for our first email.

WOULD YOU BELIEVE US IF WE TOLD YOU…

• Nathan Green, AKA “Uncle Nearest” is the GODFATHER of Tennessee Whiskey and no one knows it?
• Uncle Nearest was the first African-American master distiller on record in the United States?
• Uncle Nearest was responsible for helping perfect the Lincoln County Process (use of sugar maple charcoal to filter new-make whiskey before aging)?
• UNCLE NEAREST TAUGHT JACK DANIELS HOW TO MAKE WHISKEY?

Well, it’s all true.  At the end of the day though – its JUST DAMN GOOD WHISKEY!

So How Does It Taste?

Uncle Nearest 1856 has a caramel color with a beautiful deep golden hue. Baled hay and pumpkin seeds on the nose with subtle notes of ripe stone fruit and caramel corn. Bold and spicy upfront then mellows with sweet caramel and maple, like biting into an oatmeal raisin cookie. The finish is long and rich. It lingers pleasantly sweet on the palate with notes of vanilla after the spice dissipates.

APPEARANCE - Light caramel, straw/hay, beautiful deep golden hue
NOSE - Bale of hay, dried grass, stone fruit notes of ripe peach and apricot, caramel corn and sweet maple.
PALATE - Spicy caramel up front with the proof, hints of maple then mellows with dried fruit and floral notes. Sweetness and spice reminiscent of freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies.
FINISH - Long and rich finish, lingers pleasantly sweet on the palate, notes of vanilla.

50% ALC – 100% PROOF

Today’s Deal ~ 2018 “JNSQ” (by Justin) Rose Cru (California)

$28.95/bottle or $23.95/bottle on 6+

IMG_2965

Pronounced “je ne sais quoi” this wine/packaging
is truly unique and exceptional!!!

First Release - 

FIRST LOOK AT THIS JNSQ PACKAGING, we know you are going to say…”_________(<– add name here) would love that bottle!”  YES…that’s a glass “ROSE PETAL” stopper!!!  YES…the packaging definitely seals the deal on this wine, but the juice inside is pretty dang tasty too!  Conceptualized and brought to fruition by the team over at JUSTIN (Paso Robles) the phrase “je ne sais quoi” was the inspiration for JNSQ, a superlative new wine made from select California grapes and crafted in the style of the best French Rosés.

Upon our further research we found an article from www.wineindustryadvisor.com  ”the name gracing the beautifully curvaceous bottle – was inspired by today’s young women setting the world on fire on their own terms, with a certain  “je ne sais quoi” that’s hard to describe but undeniably irresistible.”  The article continues, ‘Millennial women and older Gen Z’ers are bringing back an appreciation for quality, craftsmanship and functional beauty,’ said Lynda Resnick, vice chair and co-owner of The Wonderful Company.  ‘JNSQ was created specifically for these women and the milestones they are celebrating in their blossoming and exhilarating lives.  It’s a wine made with that same shared quality of je ne sais quoi that makes each of these ladies unique, memorable and unstoppable.’  

THAT’S PRETTY AWESOME!

ABOUT THE BOTTLE …

The JNSQ bottle is just as distinctive as the wine inside. Fashioned by the finest French glass designer and reminiscent of a luxury perfume bottle, JNSQ is topped off by a resealable stopper adorned with our signature sculpted rose or grape, depending on the varietal. Once the wine inside has been enjoyed, this elegant bottle becomes a keepsake, ideal for displaying fragrances or fresh blooms. Of course, you’ll find countless other ways to repurpose this unique work of art.

Winery Tasting Notes: JNSQ Rosé Cru is summer in a glass, no matter what the calendar says. Not too sweet, but never bitter, this grenache-forward Rosé is clean and aromatic with a touch of strawberry and hints of Bing cherry. The dynamic flavors are accented with savory herbal and white floral notes that make it crisp and elegant, perfect for sipping by the pool, serving at a barbecue, or toasting over a candlelit dinner.”

Cheers,

The CV Crew
