Big Ass is a brand produced by the Adler Fels winery in Napa and Sonoma counties in California. The brand was designed to create a wine “...that typifies the California winemaking style...” with full body and flavors. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are big and robust while the Chardonnay is soft and buttery, all with fruit-driven flavors.

  • Holy crap OT - Piggins does some REALLY nice work. His B&W stuff in particular is really beautiful. I had no idea.As far as the dessert wines go - the NZ wine was my fave. The Bedrock wines were pretty sweet but didn't have sufficient acidity to back it up. However, that was after a long night and I don't want to judge them on that one taste as ... Read More

  • Barrels are not being replaced by stainless steel for economic reasons. I don't know who started that story but it's utterly false. Back in the 1970s when the US wine industry was first taking off, women were entering the workplace for the first time. They used to have all kinds of bars around that served a "businessman's lunch", because most pe... Read More

  • Is it me, or are oaky chards out of fashion? Nowadays most every producer I encounter boasts about their stainless steel tanks. All I want to experience with my Chardonnay is toast with a big ol' pad of melted butter on top. Can anyone recommend some excellent oaky chard producers? Thanks!  Read More

  • Big Al - Good God man! Don't take my word on this stuff!!!!!For most people, 2007 Napa was a most excellent vintage. Warm and sunny and just right.

  • Let me start by saying I pretty much drink chardonnay from France or California. If it's 90% butter and little else, I'm out. If it tastes like lemon juice and weeds, I'm also out. If California, I'm looking for nicely developed fruit profile without so much oak that it taste like I'm sucking on a tree. I like Peter Michael chardonnay ***a lot**... Read More
