Fess Parker The Big Easy 2015
The sublime and lively 2015 vintage shines through in perhaps the best Big Easy yet. A melange of ripe Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon is layered with waves of Grenache, Cinsaut, Mourvèdre and a touch of Viognier. Quite perfumed and fittingly complex, the palate is lined with chocolate, spice and confectionary cherries. A peppery nuance adds further character, all framed by a fine structure and juicy core. Ready to drink, its long chalky finish will assist its 5 years ageing potential.
Wine SpectatorLively and fun to drink, with easygoing raspberry and spice flavors that finish with a hint of toffee. Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2022. 2,914 cases made.
