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.

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.

Wine Critic Reviews
"One of the finest vintages I’ve tasted, the 2020 The Big Easy brings more elegance and purity than usual and has a beautiful bouquet of blue fruits, game, iron, and bay leaf. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has silky tannins, a layered, satisfying mouthfeel, and a great finish." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "…superb. Inky, mocha, licorice, spice and a touch of American oak give this racy, voluptuous Petite Sirah-based red tons of character. The 2020 is bold and juicy, but also more aromatic and less heavy than some previous editions. It's a beautifully rendered wine from Fess Parker." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "Dense aromas of cassis meet with rich caramel and fudge on the ripe and deep nose of this bottling. The palate is thick and intense yet retains a big-wine balance, offering cocoa, black fruit, light herb and cracked pepper flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast
