Tasting notes
A blend of several red varietals, The Big Bad Red blend appeases our inner dark side, satisfying that craving for the bold and daring. The wine leads with a bramble of berries, dark black plum and root beer flavors, framed by toasted spices. Fleshy and ripe, the palate delivers layers of black fruit with a savory and spicy character. Supple tannins hold flavors into a long, lasting finish. A perfect pairing for a dark and stormy night.

Wine maker notes
For a big, fleshy, juicy red wine, look no further than California. With its famous sunshine and cool Pacific breezes, it is a grapeís paradise. The abundance of warm days accelerates sugar production, producing plump, ripe flavors. Each night, the nearby marine influence creeps in, reducing temperatures and allowing the fruitís acids to kick in. This daily variation produces perfectly balanced and utterly delicious wine grapes. Made primarily from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel, The Big Bad Red blend pulls together the best of each varietal for a wine of complexity and depth. We began with Merlot, which makes up one-third of the blend, giving a round, plump base of juicy dark berry fruit and sturdy oak profile. Our Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from Napa, lends the backbone to the wine with ripe tannins and layers of cocoa, plum and blackberry. Syrah adds depth with a meaty roundness and soft, fleshy tannins while a touch of Zinfandel gives a juicy berry impact.
