California - THE NEWEST WAY TO EXPERIENCE WINE! Bourbon barrel aged for three months, which adds flavors of vanilla, caramel and oak to the raspberry and spice flavors of Zinfandel. Vegan
Revolutionizing wine, one Bourbon barrel at a time. Big Six’s red wines, which include a Cabernet, Zinfandel and red blend, are aged in Bourbon barrels to give them rich depth of flavor and layered notes of vanilla and spice.
Big Six is named for the legend of Mickey “Big Six” Doyle, said to be Kentucky’s fastest Bourbon bootlegger in the early 1920s. With the help of his lightning fast six-cylinder-engine car, Big Six always remained one step ahead of the Five-O. Inspired by this tale, Big Six wines are so good – they should be against the law!
Zinfandel is one of the classic wines of California, where it has been popular since Gold Rush days. The red Zinfandel grape thrives in warm climate regions, most notably portions of the Central and Sonoma valleys. When fully ripe, Zinfandel grapes contain high amounts of sugar, which can be completely fermented to create a dry and fairly high-alcohol wine, or be left in part as a trace of residual sweetness.
Zinfandel wine made in the traditional fashion may be unoaked, easy-drinking and jammy, or oak-aged and full bodied. Old-vine versions can be particularly intense and rich. Expect flavors of black fruits and spice in all. The full flavors and bit of sweetness make Zinfandel a great match for grilled and barbecued meats, especially those cooked in sweet or tomato-based sauces.
