Tasting Notes - The 2013 Big Guy Red is a blend of seven varietals. Cabernet sauvignon lays the firm foundation with Syrah from the Sierra Foothills and Paso Robles lending ripe, luscious fruit to the nose and a juicy, delicious palate. Merlot further enhances the blend, providing rich fruit and supple tannins. The result is a wine with plenty of pleasing dark fruit character, notes of sweet wood and moderate tannins. 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. Cabernet Sauvignon 57%, Syrah 26%, Merlot 9%, Petite Sirah 3%, Petit Verdot 2%, Malbec 2%, Cabernet Franc 1%. 14.5% ABV.
