Description

With The Big Easy we wanted to pay homage to one of our favorite cities, a culinary mecca and great supporters of our wines, New Orleans.

"...the 2014 The Big Easy is always the total crowd pleaser in the lineup – and it doesn’t disappoint in 2014. Plums, spice, pepper, incense and melted licorice all flow to a ripe, sexy, plump and decadent red that’s loaded with sweet fruit." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"The nose of this New Orleans inspired blend is juicy and fruit forward, with blackberry jam, black plum and a light licorice scents. It’s soft and full on the palate, with Concord grape flavors and nicely polished tannins. A crowdpleaser." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"Soft and easygoing, with appealing blueberry, sassafras and spice flavors. Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache. Drink now through 2022." ~ Wine Spectator
