WA 91 WE 91 Pts - According to the Wine Advocate - One of the more civilized and streamlined versions of this cuvee, the 2011 The Big Easy gives up loads of black fruits, tar and hints of flowers in its medium to full-bodied, silky, ripe and textured profile. Made from 65% Syrah, 22% Petite Sirah and 13% Grenache that spent 20 months in 40% new French and American oak, it will deliver the goods for 8-10 years.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This proprietary blend starts with a very gamy though thoroughly enjoyable nose of charred meat, coffee, berry and compost. On the palate, there is espresso, dried herbs and black cherry, proving to be a complex and savory yet very easy-to-like wine.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 The Big Easy is Fess Parker's Syrah/Petite Sirah/Grenache blend. A jammy, racy red, the Big Easy hits the palate with layers of super-ripe fruit, spices and flowers, all given a touch of added sweetness from a touch of American oak. This is another strong 2011 from Fess Parker.
Tasting Notes - 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 & vanilla on the palate. 65% Syrah, 22% Petite Sirah & 13% Grenache. 14.9% ABV.
