The historic Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage has partnered with Natchez Hills Winery to launch two signature labels.
“Born for a Storm” is a Premium Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a full-bodied, fresh and easy-drinking red. It starts with a fruit-forward style with flavors of oak, vanilla, and chocolate and ends with a velvety finish. “I was born for a storm and a calm does not suit me.” Andrew Jackson redefined what it meant to lead the country. Not one for caring what others thought, Alexander Hamilton quoted Jackson in a letter to Martin Van Buren on February 23, 1829, describing the president’s attitude toward gossip surrounding his appointment of John Eaton as Secretary of War. Eaton’s marriage to Margaret (Peggy) O’Neal threatened to cause a public scandal, but Jackson was not going to be dissuaded from the appointment by what he viewed as hearsay. The scandal leading to this famous Jackson quote became known as the “Eaton Affair.”
