Bernie’s pick of the week!

2013 Big Gun Red Blend

75% Syrah, 8% Merlot, 7% Carignane, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot
California
You there! Yes you, I dare you to try and find a wine that is an equal in muscular flavor to the amazing 2013 Big Gun Red Blend. You’d be hard pressed to find a wine that packs as much fruit with adroit acidity than this well-balanced fella. Big Gun punches well above its class when it comes to price, and I defy you to find a potent potable as powerfully smooth and satisfying as this wine.

WINE PROFILE

  • Vineyard Notes
  • Alexander Valley, Lake County & Napa Valley
  • Winemaker’s Notes
  • Ripe red fruit flavors of strawberry and cherry followed by some plum and cola. Dark garnet in color, the wine has a full and plush texture that yields flavors of dark, brambly fruit as well as spice and toasted oak.
  • Maturation
  • Aged for 12 months in 30% new French oak and the balance in neutral barrels.
