Wine Information


Big Bottle Party - Large Format Bottles

Event attendees should submit a large format bottle of wine (minimum value of $250*) available through Pogo’s Wine & Spirits, Classic Wine, or perhaps, your own private cellar. Then get ready for a friendly competition where a team of wine experts will look for the biggest bottle, most unique, best etched, best in show and new for this year, people’s choice. All bottles must be received in advance and will be displayed at the beginning of Big Bottle Party.

*Bottle donation is per couple, or individual if attending without a guest. In lieu of a large format bottle, a donation of at least $250.00 can be made to the American Heart Association to meet his requirement. All donations will be used to purchase large format bottles to be auctioned off in Big Bottle Alley the evening of the Dallas Côtes du Coeur Gala.

Winery Tasting Notes

2020 Date Night Sauvignon Blanc

DATE NIGHT is the ‘proof’ of Shane and Suzanne Pavitt’s dedicated commitment to a weekly date night.

Tasting Notes: Opens with luscious heady aromas of white peach, kiwi, tangerine juice, pineapple, and limes. On the palate it is bold, round and refreshing, layered with flavors of homemade lemon bars, cold peach juice, nectarine flesh, sweet grapefruit, fig jam, and pie crust.

2017 Date Night Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes: Welcoming and luxurious, with aromas of crushed cherries, milk chocolate, flambéed cherries, toasted almonds, black cherry juice, warm croissants, black tar, strawberry candy, and hints of Christmas spice. On the palate, an ultra rich and luxurious treat, with gobs of molasses, salted caramel, finishing deep and long, with flavors that seem to go on forever. Drink now through 2039.
