This is not your typical Cabernet. In true Big House® fashion, we rejected the idea that we had to make a traditional and expected oaky cab. Instead, we did what we do best-created a mouth-watering wine like no other. Its notes of rich, black currants and hints of mocha lead into dark berries and plums, making this a wine that you will always be able to pick out from a lineup. Like Bugs Moran and his North Side Gang, our Cabernet doesn’t mess around.
Bugs Moran was the last leader of the Chicago-based North Side Gang, which was best known for running alcohol rackets during Prohibition. He became legendary in part due to his gang’s bitter rivalry against Al Capone’s South Side Gang, which was also trying to gain control over Chicago’s alcohol bootlegging racket. The rivalry came to a bloody head on February 14, 1929 when seven of Moran’s gang were slaughtered by South Side members dressed up as police officers. Moran left Chicago several years after Prohibition ended, but continued his career, committing robbery and fraud.
