Wine Review: This "Big Time Red Blend" from Oregon is brick red colored. Sokol Blosser releases these wines by edition rather than by vintage year. This 4th edition has a bouquet of blackberry, oak, herbs and black pepper. It is full bodied, smooth and dry on the palate. It displays flavors of black cherry, oak, black pepper and light licorice. It closes with nice light tannins. It is even tempered, has balance, and structure that makes it very food friendly. I would pair this wine with a bacon and mushroom burger topped with red onions and Gorgonzola. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Evolution Big Time Red is now bigger and bolder than before. With the same components that you’ve come to love in this blend – Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Syrah and just a touch of Evolution Lucky No. 9, our winemaking team has reworked the percentages to create a bigger, rounder flavor profile. This wine is structured and rich with flavors of cherry jam, black cherry and black currants and hints of savory notes throughout the palate.

Organic status: not organic
