Scotty-Boy! - Big Tang! (2019)

100% Syrah

please stop and take a moment to consider this label very carefully, almost literally, to get a whiff of what’s happening behind. BIG TANG. just say it sotto voce a few times while taking in the menagerie of scribbles constituting this so-called wine label. the semi-crazed expression on the scotty-boy! visage. the thought bubble realization — BIG TANG is in the house! a scotty-boy! thunder bolt pops out of the matrix next to the SCOTTY-BOY! head. hallucination? delirious? SCOTTY-BOY! shudders with delight. BIG TANG is here! seems like some very BIG TANG is happening here! is it gonna be a BIG TANG FEST, my friends?! OH YES, MY FRIENDS!!! BIG TANG!!! BIG TANG!!! BIG TANG!!! 

Santa Barbara County

“nothing added/nothing taken away” is our operative mantra. Scotty-Boy! wines step up to the table purely themselves with transparent origins – no inoculations, no additions, no added sulfur, native fermentations, always bottled unfined and unfiltered. the grapes at the genesis of these bottles hail from small family owned vineyards, artisinally farmed at least sustainably, if not organically and/or biodynamically; and are only harvested by hand.

fresh and young, these wines are meant to be drunk sooner rather than later with a good chill. truly unfiltered, they will often appear cloudy and throw sediment – part of the charm and proof of concept.

we hope you enjoy this humble project. again, even though this is some high quality juice, don’t feel shy to: throw some ice cubes in; pour them into red plastic cups; pound them on the patio; forget them in the fridge; and/or mix them into a cocktail. hey, sip from a fancy glass with upturned pinky if that’s your jam. these wines are entirely for your pleasure, however you see fit. no hassle, totally casual and fancy free.

(excuse me, just lost my mind for a sec)

nose: ume plum blossom, desiccated violet, coriander, black peppercorn

palate: under-ripe dates, blackberry, cinnamon, whole lotta love

Gamey Meat, Lamb Ragu, Heavily Peppered Delmonico Steak
