Wine Review: This white blend made from 11 different grapes is a really nice value wine. It is light yellow colored and opens with a very fragrant peach and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced, juicy and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a mild grapefruit with notes of green apple and a hint of white pepper and lychee. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this value blend with swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Big House wines are a rebellious mix of non-traditional grape varieties destined to give the imbiber a new experience. To wit this year's prisoner is a captivating blend of aromatic whites that span the distance of the Alps themselves. With a nose that carries the vibrancy of spring and white flowers and lychee fruit that surround the senses. The palate opens up to tropical fruits, dried apricot and white peaches. This wine finishes strong with a cleansing citrus zest that lingers. It's quite possibly the perfect accompaniment for fresh fish, Asian cuisine or even Sunday morning fruit salads.
