New from Don & Sons, The Big Smooth is a 2013 old vine zinfandel.
The wine is sourced from the grape-growing appellations Lodi, Sonoma and Napa, and features a velvet purple label with fishnet stocking detail and a leg lamp image. It was aged for 14 months in French, American and Hungarian oak.
The wine features aromas of dried currant, plum, fig, pepper and cinnamon, the company says, followed by flavors of black cherry, raspberry and hints of spice, coconut and vanilla from the oak aging.
The blend breakdown is 76% zinfandel, 11% petite sirah, 8% merlot, 2% primitivo, 2% petit verdot and 1% cabernet sauvignon.
The Big Smooth is 15.5% ABV, and available in select cities for a suggested retail price of $17.99. Launches took place in California, Colorado, Massachusetts and Illinois. Additional market expansion is expected in 2016.
