Notes from the Winemaker:
"Big Games" are about long-standing rivals on the same playing field where the outcome is bigger than the individual participants. In wine, the rivalry of Rhone and Bordeaux regions is timeless. Our wine, The Big Game, is where Bordeaux meets Rhone and everyone wins. The stars are Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot on one side and Syrah on the other.

Ultimately, the character of the wine is closer to the complexity and size of Bordeaux than Rhone, but the spirit of the wine is a tie. The Big Game is layered, complex, and mouth-filling. There is something in there for everybody. The red fruits, the black fruits, the freshness, the earthiness. It's a classic.


Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"As delicious and succulent as anything out there, with black currant, blueberry and chocolate flavors that are vastly deep and long on the finish. Fortunately, there's brisk acidity and fine tannins, and despite the luscious fruit and oak, it's dry on the finish. This blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is fully drinkable now." -Steve Heimoff (7/1/2013)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Game, meat, plum and berry flavors are full-bodied and fleshy, showing notes of crushed rock, graphite and licorice, with a long, layered finish. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2023. 96 cases made." -JL (Dec 15, 2012)
