Description

In 1954, the first episode of Davy Crockett debuted on the Disney television show. No one could have predicted the indelible impact this series would have on American popular culture. Few other characters have embodied our country's most cherished traits of integrity, ingenuity and a penchant for doing what is right the way Davy Crockett did. In portraying this character, Fess Parker's acting career was launched and the young man from West Texas soon captured the hearts and minds of Americans in an enduring manner that has yet to be replicated. 

In 2010 Fess Parker's incredible life came to an end at the age of 85.  While family & friends miss him dearly, we all know we are better off for the time we spent with him. The Fess Parker family remains committed to carrying on the vision and lessons passed on by Fess. In this spirit, we offer Crockett. 

Tasting Notes
Opaque purple, with a deep, saturated color. High-toned black and blue fruits, dried herbs, dried tobacco, vanilla and grilled meat are abundant on the nose. On the palate, the Crockett has great weight, texture and length, suggesting that it will age well 4 to 6 years from the vintage date. Savor flavors of blackberry, black plum, grilled herbs, leather, scorched earth and dark chocolate.
