Big Red Productions Red Blend California the Big Red Monster NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes It is made of Syrah, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah from multiple recent vintages and from multiple regions of California. Medium to dark purple in the glass this wine has a pleasant nose of cherry, cassis and vanilla aromas. In the mouth it is smooth and soft and round with no perceptible tannins and a mix of fruit flavors including black cherry, cherry, and cola. The wine is balanced, though perhaps possesses the tiniest hint of sweetness amidst all the ripe fruit. Not to beat a metaphor to death, but this wine is definitely a crowd pleaser for anyone who enjoys a bolder style of red wine with plenty of fruit.

Holy fruit explosion in my mouth! It starts off as a huge, earthy, bold red and ends with a punch of cherries. It makes me tingly and warm all over.

fruity and spicy, this wine is very easy to drink. For casual diner or summer barbecue. Great quality price ratio. And the label is fantastic! Needs to be opened 30 minutes prior to drinking
