2008 Big House White

SKU #1051817

#1 on the "Top 100 Best Buys of 2009" and 90 points from Wine Enthusiast: "Continues the solid trend of this label producing some of the best values in California. Dry, crisp and delicious, with mineral-infused flavors of oranges, honeysuckle and buttered toast. A blend of Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Roussanne." (10/09) Once owned by the rapscallion Randall Graham of Bonny Doon fame, the Big House label has gone through many permutations over the years, but none of its wines has ever achieved the level of success of the 2008 Big House White. This blend of Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Roussanne has created quite a buzz and was recently awarded the #1 wine spot on the Wine Enthusiast's "Top 100 Best Buys of 2009." With its dynamic aromatics of lychee, passion fruit, bubble gum, lemon meringue and wintermint, and its sassy flavors of wet stone, blood orange flesh, mango and overall floral nature, we think it is going to be a huge hit. It's wildly affordable at well under $10 a bottle and simply hard to put down before the entire bottle is gone. This is a perfect "Holiday Season" party wine, stock up now while you can.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
