Fess Parker The Big Easy 2010
Wine AdvocateWith 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. Drink now-2019.
Wine SpectatorAppropriately named, this offers easygoing dark berry, crushed rock, anise, licorice and floral scents that are persistent, ending with fleshy tannins. Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache. Drink now through 2018.
Wine EnthusiastMade from Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache, this robust, tannic blend has sweet-tasting jam and cola flavors, plus a note of peppery spice. It's a little hot due to the high alcohol, and it has a touch of green vegetable on the midpalate. Drink up.
