Big House Red Syrah Blend 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Big House Red Syrah Blend 2008 Wine Review
Smoky black cherries with a sprinkling of pepper and earth. Robust, smooth and delicious. Great balance and loads of flavour. Bring it on! 4.4/5 Syrah Blend food pairings: grilled meats, lasagna Bolognese, grilled vegetables.

|2008 was a hot and smoky year in Soledad. This Big House Red lives up to that old Fruit Bomb moniker that you’ve come to expect. It starts with a nose full of loganberries and raspberries, with hints of leather and spices. The palate is clean, exhibiting flavors of cranberries, roses, and a touch of rhubarb. This finish lingers, with flavors of vanilla, and a touch of smoke.|
The grapes underwent a cold soak for a couple of days, then were fermented at 60°-65°F. Portions of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation and barrel aging in mostly French and American neutral oak.
Please note the price above is the LCBO price - in BC the price is $12.99.
