Wine Review: This Big Boy Sangiovese based red blend from Washington State is very very good. It is pitch black colored and opens with a fragrant black currant bouquet with hints of blueberry and cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, round, rich and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a bold, concentrated and ripe blackberry with notes boysenberry and black licorice. I also detected some Dr. Pepper and oak towards the end. The finish is quite dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite some time along with its juicy fruit. I covered this Super Tuscan styled wine on a chilly October night by the fireplace. It was perfect with Kerrygold's Dubliner cheese. Enjoy – Ken (Wine Club only)
