Description

"A jammy blend that's fun to drink, with bold, fruit-forward blackberry, mocha and spiced pepper favors that finish with refned tannins...Drink now through 2028." ~ Wine Spectator

"Roasted blackberry, charred blueberry and smoked meat aromas waft toward the nose in this brawny bottling. It’s viscous, slightly waxy and rich on the sip, full of açaí, cassis and more smoked meat flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"The 2018 The Big Easy lives up to its name and is a big, showy, opulent, and certainly delicious red that has lots of plum and blackberry fruits, notes of chocolate and some subtle meatiness, full-bodied richness, and supple, ripe tannins. Drink this pleasurebent beauty over the coming 3-4 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

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.

This well-structured blend has the same characteristics you have come to expect from The Big Easy, rich dark fruit flavors with a touch of oak, and soft tannins that lead to a long lengthy finish.
