Named after "Big John", he was the John J. Ascuagas' Golden Nugget sale topper bull in 1974.
With only the best of our barrels selected, a dark ruby color signifies this full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, king of all red wines with aromas of ripe black berries and toasted nuts while the palate reveals layers of dark chocolate, cassis, leather and vanilla that keep lingering. A great wine with red meats and mushroom sauces.
The grapes were handpicked at perfect ripeness and full of flavor then sorted and crushed. Fermentation took place in small 1 ton bins and the wines were fermented to dryness. The wine was aged for 15 months in small French and American Oak Barrels.
