The Big Guy 2010 Red Wine is a blend from select lots drawn from two of California’s esteemed winegrowing regions: Napa Valley and the Sierra Foothills. The blend is predominately Syrah, from the Canterbury Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills where the grapes are ripe and luscious with sunny fruit flavors and a delicious mouth feel.
Winemaker Anthony Bell also selected Merlot from the winery’s estate vineyard in Yountville, which yields concentrated fruit with depth and rich black fruit characters. Blended together, with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, the result is a wine with lively fruit aromas, rich, ripe fruit flavors on the palate and soft, supple tannins in a persistent finish. While it’s approachable at an earlier age, the oak tannins also give the wine structure allowing it to develop for several years down the road.
Try pairing the Big Guy 2010 Red Wine with bratwurst sandwiches, pizza, or anything barbequed! The Big Guy Red is delicious with spare ribs, pork tenderloins, burgers, and rib eyes.
