In Handcuffs

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from the winery.

Not too long ago I reviewed the 2008 version of this wine. Then, poof, the other day the 2009 arrived on my doorstep. It’s like magic. My opinion of it remains much the same, a fun fruity wine on the cheap that’s great for the hot weather or to serve at a party. The 2009 Big House White had a screw cap closure and retails for about $8. Matt tossed the bottle before I could record the alcohol by volume.

On the nose I found pineapple, jasmine, white flowers, tropical notes, peach, and pear.  In the mouth I got pineapple, spice, white peaches, tropical fruit, and flowers. Overall it’s crisp and refreshing and could definitely knock a couple grapes off your Century Club application with the mixture of grapes it contains!
