2017 Fess Parker “The Big Easy” Santa Barbara County Red Blend
Winery notes: “A blend of 53% Syrah, 32% Grenache, and 15% Petite Sirah, this opaque purple-colored wine entices with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, boysenberry, vanilla, baking spices, smoked chocolate, and anise. Flavors of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, plum, smoked meat, and vanilla lead to a lengthy finish.”
Vinous 92 points – The 2017 The Big Easy, Fess Parker’s Syrah, Grenache and Petite Sirah blend, is powerful, inky and dense, and yet it is also impeccably balanced. Chocolate, plum, cedar, licorice and leather are some of the many notes that race out of the glass in this decidedly sumptuous, flamboyant wine.
