Winemaker's Notes

Big House Red has always been somewhat of a social deviant. No more Mr. Rhônely-hearts; sangiovese became him. Donning a crushed-velvet cape he quickly headed out for pizza. The 1998 Big House presents a distinctly Tuscan profile with a little more smoke, tar, and blacker fruit than we have seen in the recent past: a little more earth, a little less lip gloss.
