Deep ruby in color, our 2014 Big Guy is a blend of our two favorite varietals, making up 96% of the wine. Cabernet sauvignon from Lodi lays the firm foundation, with Syrah from the Sierra Foothills and Central Coast lending ripe, luscious fruit to the nose and a juicy, delicious palate. On the nose the wine opens with sweet oak notes of vanilla accompanied by perfumed, dusted raspberries, underlain with hints of dried cranberry. Well balanced, with a lovely structure, the soft tannins and sweet vanilla oak carry the red fruits, delivering flavors that gently expand on the palate. The result is a wine with plenty of pleasing dark fruit character, notes of sweet wood, moderate tannins and sweetly spiced, juicy fruit that begs for the next sip!
This is a wine for every day drinking, whether on its own, on the patio with barbeque, or in the dining room with roasted duck.
