This well-structured blend has the same characteristics you have come to expect from The Big Easy, rich dark fruit flavours with a touch of oak, and soft tannins that lead to a long lengthy finish. In the glass the wine is opaque purple in colour. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, boysenberry, vanilla, baking spices, smoked chocolate, anise. Flavours of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, plum, smoked meat, vanilla. Aged 16 months in 61% new French & American oak.

A rich and decadent blend of 57% Syrah, 31% Petite Sirah, 12% Grenache. Fruit comes from Rodney’s Vineyard (70%) and Camp Four Vineyard (30%) both located in the Santa Ynez Valley. With The Big Easy we wanted to pay homage to one of our favourite cities, a culinary mecca and great supporters of our wines, New Orleans.

Founded in 1989, the Fess Parker winery is located in Santa Barbara County, the Californian wine region made famous by the cult movie Sideways.

Just 90 minutes north of LA, Santa Barbara County is one of California’s most diverse viticultural regions. Sta. Rita Hills, in particular, is arguably the most exciting wine region in the world for making cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir right now. 

"With The Big Easy we wanted to pay homage to one of our favourite cities, a culinary mecca and great supporters of our wines, New Orleans. Notes of blackberry, plum, smoked meat, acacia flower, vanilla, pepper and black cherry are found on the nose along with flavours of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, black cherry, all spice & vanilla on the palate. Enjoy this meaty, well structured blend to a long lengthy finish with its dense chocolaty tannins."- Fess Parker Winery

"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, liquorice and leather are some of the many notes that race out of the glass in this decidedly sumptuous, flamboyant wine. Readers who like overt, generous reds will find much to like here. I find myself increasingly drawn to The Big Easy now that it is a bit less heavy than it was years ago. This rich, hedonistic Santa Barbara red is sure to find many fans" - Vinous, September/2019, 92 points
