Wine tasting notes

The 2017 Big Easy is arguably the most serious vintage yet. It is a shade darker with a black core, offering a brooding nose that takes time to unfold. Complexity is revealed with elegantly ripe black berry, liquorice, fine Chinese spice and smoked herbs. A majority of Shiraz (60%) cloaks the palate with fruit-laden tannins, covered in melted milk chocolate and morello cherries.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2017) - 87 pts

A blend of 60% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsaut, 5% Viognier and 5% Grenache, the 2017 The Big Easy is a respectable and expressive Rhône blend without a big price tag. There are soft red and black-fruited notes of dusty cherry, spiced tea and black plum on the nose with a mineral expression. Medium-bodied, the palate is straightforward and clean, showing a balanced structure and delivering pleasure, ending with a lingering finish. It drinks well for the price. Give it a try.
