X Winery Big Gun Red comes from the vineyards of Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley and Alexander Valley, California. X Winery was created in 2001 along with Amicus Cellars by CEO/Winemaker Reed Renaudin. The new winery's philosophy is to use the latest winemaking research and technology and overlay it with traditional winemaking techniques to produce consumer-friendly wines at outstanding prices. The successful result is that X Winery Big Gun Red is a true red wine gem. Winemakers are Reed Renaudin and Gina Richmond. Only 1000 cases produced.
X Winery Big Gun Red is a red blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 12% Syrah and 6% Tempranillo. It is dark garnet red in color and packed with bright aromas of black cherry, dark berry with secondary characteristics of chocolate and coffee bean. Layered red berry flavors give this blend good structure. Medium-bodied and fleshy, this wine is well balanced yet envelops the senses. The wine was aged for 9 months in 40% new French oak and the balance in neutral barrels. Polished and beautifully balanced, it offers a generous finish with a hint of toasty oak and silky tannins.
Enjoy X Winery Big Gun Red over the next 7-8 years with steak, burgers, rack of lamb, rich vegetable dishes and sharp cheeses.
