About

Ever on the hunt for something new, here, Jared Dixon, winemaker behind the Jilly label, takes on some of the alternative varieties thriving amongst the diverse viticultural sites in New England.

The 2016 Big Cats is a Portuguese-inspired red blend featuring Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao and Tempranillo. These varieties complement each other wonderfully in this release, bringing slinky tannins and exotic spice to a medium bodied framework.

Jared’s soft touch in the winery has balanced this perfectly. Mike Bennie awarded it 93 points and with only 100 dozen made and the interest around Jared’s brand, Big Cats won’t be around for long.

What It Tastes Like

“Curious and great aromas of warm terracotta, sweet spice, Xmas pudding, dark berries and clove. Lovely stuff. Soft in texture with fine tannins finishing the wine in a dusty chomp. It’s bright and flavoursome, lively, interesting, actually very delicious, succulent and shows a scatter of herb and spice complexity. Geez, yum.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
