2016 Fess Parker ‘Big Easy’ Red Blend, Santa Barbara, CA
95 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous- $32.99

"The 2016 The Big Easy is fabulous. Rich, powerful and flamboyant to its core the Big Easy hits the palate with tremendous fruit intensity. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, white chocolate, vanillin and new American oak shape this opulent Syrah/Petite Sirah/Grenache blend. Winemaker Blair Fox has dialed in a style that captures all the exuberance of past editions, but with more nuance than the Big Easy has ever shown. And I say that as someone who has never loved this wine. The 2016 is simply outrageously delicious." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

2016 Fess Parker, Santa Rita Hills, Pinot Noir
90 points Wine Spectator- $25.99

"Elegant, showing suave dried berry and red fruit flavors that are flush with dried herb and understory accents. Rich and minerally on the finish." ~ Wine Spectator
