Description

With The Big Easy, Fess Parker pays homage to one of their favorite cities, a culinary mecca and great supporters of their 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.

Blend: 57% Syrah, 31% Petite Sirah, 12% Grenache

95 Points Vinous - The 2016 The Big Easy is fabulous. Rich, powerful and flamboyant to its core the Big Easy hits the palate with tremendous fruit intensity. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, white chocolate, vanillin and new American oak shape this opulent Syrah/Petite Sirah/Grenache blend. Winemaker Blair Fox has dialed in a style that captures all the exuberance of past editions, but with more nuance than the Big Easy has ever shown. And I say that as someone who has never loved this wine. The 2016 is simply outrageously delicious.

Jeb Dunnuck - The 2016 The Big Easy checks in as a blend of 57% Syrah, 31% Petite Sirah, and 12% Grenache brought up in French and American oak (61% new). It's always an uber-ripe, pleasure-bent effort and the 2016 is no exception, although it has a beautiful weightlessness and elegance about it as well. Blackcurrants, camphor, scorched earth, licorice, and spice notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, delicious red that packs ample fruit and texture. Don't age it, drink it.
