Fess Parker Santa Barbara the Big Easy 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Big Easy pays homage to New Orleans, a culinary mecca and supporters of Fess Parker wines. Notes of blueberry, blackberry, smoked meat, lavender and vanila found on the nose along with flavors of black cherry, blackberry compote, cinnamon and vanilla on the palate. Enjoy this meaty, well structured blend to a long lengthy finish with its dense chocolaty tannins.
