Big House

Big House Pink

Big House White

“I had nothing to escape from but privilege, but I claimed asylum anyway.” – Diablo Cody

These wines are so much fun, it’s almost criminal.  The Big House Pink is my favorite of the trio.  It’s a gorgeous raspberry juice color with subtle strawberry flavors.  I’m enchanted with rosé, and this is a good example, it’s an uncomplicated, delicious quaff.

The Big House White has a fantastic nose due to the viognier, it’s a light and bright wine.  The Big House Red is a simple red table wine.  Andrea said, “It’s smells kinda bad, but it tastes delicious.”  Ginny liked the aroma, and the boys simply asked for refills.

The alcohol ranges from 13-13.5%.  The closure is Stelvin screw-cap.  The grapes are sourced all over California, with the white a blend of six varietals, the rosé contains eleven, and the red a veritable multiple personality with thirteen different grapes.  The suggested retail price on these is $10 USD.  The wine is produced by Underdog Wine Merchants.  This was a sample kindly provided by Folsom & Associates (no connection to the correctional facility!)

The music match is “A Prisoner of the Past” by Prefab Sprout from the album Andromeda Heights.  If you’re having a Hard Labor Day, don’t scale the walls, just break-out one of these wines and pray for clemency.
