Wine Review: Big House Wines – Syrah

Welcome to Wine Wednesday! Here you will find new wines at an affordable price. See all of our Wine Wednesday features here. You can also view our Cocktail Corner posts here.

Our Slammer is a no-holds-barred, muscular Syrah that keeps fruity ripeness in check. Full-bodied with sweet dark berry flavors, a touch of chocolate, and a lingering finish. Our Slammer Syrah is well-balanced with a rounded mouthfeel that makes it enjoyable now or through years of sentencing.

This is actually the first time I have tried a Syrah so I don’t have much to compare it to. I really enjoyed their Pinot Grigio. If you missed that review, click HERE.

Big House Wines Syrah, also known as “The Slammer Syrah” is a full bodied wine. I got hints of blackberry and cocoa. I wasn’t as impressed with their Syrah as I had hoped. It could be because I am just not a big Syrah fan- I don’t know as I haven’t tried any before this, but this was a drinkable wine. It wasn’t over powering with flavor, but it wasn’t lacking any either. I also drank the whole bottle without sharing, if that says anything.

If I were to recommend a food pairing, I would have to say try it with a yummy burger. Or you can pair it with one of Big House Wines recommendation: Pairings-in-crime includes sundry roast meats, garlicky leg of lamb, and wild game.

Overall, it was a pretty decent wine. If you are a Syrah fan I would definitely recommend trying it. The bottle runs for only $10.00, which makes it the perfect wine to invest in to try. I am actually going to be purchasing another bottle and storing it for a couple of years, it may bring out some of the richer flavors of this wine and be more enjoyable.

You are in for a treat when visiting their website. I could spend hours on it, so please visit them to learn more about their wines at:

Last week I also shared with you the adorable wine cap from The Birdman’s Pinot Grigio. Here is the one from The Slammer Syrah. I absolutely LOVE them!

“so good, they’re almost criminal.”
