Evolution Big Time Red is now bigger and bolder than before. With the same components that you’ve come to love in this blend – Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Syrah and just a touch of Evolution Lucky No. 9 White, the winemaking team has reworked the percentages to create a bigger, rounder flavour profile. This wine is structured and rich with flavors of cherry jam, black cherry and black currants and hints of savory notes throughout the palate.
The goal with this red blend was to make it appear effortless, easy-to-drink and food-friendly but in reality be quite complex. This makes it fun. Fun to blend and fun to drink! This is a big red blend using a couple of traditional Italian varietals and one traditional French varietal. Also, like the French Rhône’s, a splash of white wine is added. Just a small percentage of Evolution Lucky No. 9 White, to bring in another layer of complexity that lifts the aromatics, color and flavour. All these aspects together showcase the evolution from old world wines to new world wines.

Call it a perfect bistro red, ready for burgers or pizza, matching charming red fruits to well-balanced tannins.See detailed press review
