Winemaker Notes

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

Blend: 66% Syrah, 19% Petite Sirah, 15% Grenache

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
With loads of upfront appeal, the 2010 The Big Easy dishes out plenty of chocolaty dark fruits, leather, ground pepper and asphalt aromas to go with a full-bodied, voluptuously textured palate. Seamless, beautifully balanced and even elegant, with clean aromas and flavors, it will continue to deliver the goods for another 5-6 years, if not longer.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
Lush and smooth with ripe plum and blackberry fruit; supple and generous with dense flavors and medium weight; rich and layered with spice and fleshy fruit; long and balanced.

Central Coast, California

With a dry and mild climate cooled significantly by moist ocean fog and breezes, Santa Barbara County is a grape-grower’s dream. Part of the larger Central Coast appellation, Santa Barbara is home to Santa Maria Valley and Santa Ynez Valley. The conditions here provide an opportunity for nearly effortless production of high-quality cool-climate Central Coast wines. This is also the site of the 2004 film Sideways, which caused Pinot Noir’s popularity to skyrocket and brought new acclaim to the region.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the stars of Santa Barbara, producing wines marked by racy acidity. Crisp Sauvignon Blanc and savory Syrah are also important. The region is home to many young and enthusiastic winemakers eager to experiment with less common varieties including Chenin Blanc, Grüner Veltliner, Trousseau Gris, Gamay and Cabernet Franc, making it an exciting area to watch.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
