Big House Red Blend (3 Liter Octavin Home Wine Bar) 2010
from Central Coast, California
Well, at least this year we weren't "burning down da House," but it was an unusually long and cool
season that led to berries with low yields and great concentration again. This Big House Red lives up
to that old Fruit Bomb moniker that you've come to expect.
It starts with a nose full of blackberries
and raspberries, with hints of leather and spices. The palate is clean, exhibiting flavors of
cranberries, roses and a touch of rhubarb. This finish lingers, with flavors of vanilla and a touch
of dark cherries in the finish.
A true trump card, Big House Red pairs well with all grilled meats, lasagna Bolognese, grilled
vegetables or even sashimi grade Ahi tuna.
