HOUSTON – Hi everyone! Derrick here! In today’s Wine Club Wednesday, Poured by H‑E‑B, whiskey meets wine! 

Check out the Barrel Bomb Cabernet and its unique flavor.  The stout bottle shape might have you assuming it’s a sweeter beverage, like a port or sherry, but this 80% Cabernet, 20% Malbec and Petit Verdot from Paso Robles, California has a dry and rich, powerful flavor profile of vanilla, licorice and oak.

The secret to its taste is all in the aging process. First, the wine spends 12 months in oak barrels and is transferred to Kentucky Bourbon Casks where it continues the aging process for another 90 days.  The result is a wine and Bourbon combination that is surprisingly complimentary.  The unexpected taste is great on its own or can also be paired with a sweeter dessert after a meal.  At $20, the price tag is just right.  Barrel Bomb Cabernet makes a great gift for someone you love – or for yourself!

H‑E‑B has a holiday cabernet sale happening right now. You can save 15% when you buy six Cabernets, 20% when you purchase 12 or more. The sale is good now through December 24th. Stock up and make your holiday the bomb.

Happy sipping!
