Some lifted old world-style volatile notes, alongside dried fruit. Warm, with powerful tannins. Tasted June 2014...

2015 Big Head Red from NOTL ($20 from the winery), mostly from Cab Franc berries that were dried in old tobacco kilns to intensify the fruit (appassimento method typical for italian ripassos and amarones). Intense rub-garnet in color with a fruit forward flavor --- dark cherry, black plums with hints of oak. Medium tannins, dry, and med-long finish. Beauty. Great with burgers, smoked cheeses or even on its own.
