2009 Big House: The Usual Suspect - Cabernet Sauvignon
2009 Big House: The Usual Suspect -
90% Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon has become one of the biggest, most popular red wine varieties EVER. So it's only logical that a company like Big House Wines would take their stab at it. Big House Wines is a company that makes great wine, but like I said in my review of their "Naked" Chardonnay, they don't worry about taking themselves too seriously which is, well, a good change of pace.
Big House's Cabernet Sauvignon contains 10% Genache which really helps to liven things up. It pours a dark maroon, almost purple. It has aromas of dark toasted plums, vanilla, and a touch of spice. You sip and get the suspected plum notes, dark blackberries, and a touch of coffee and dark chocolate in the finish. The tannins are moderately drying, but pretty balanced. This wine is VERY drinkable, so beware.
Drink This: if you want a lively Cabernet Sauvignon for really quite the bargain ($10 and under). This comes in standard 750 mL bottles, but I honestly suggest their 3L size since you will likely be drinking quite a bit of this.
