2010 The Big Easy, Santa Barbara County Red Wine, Fess Parker Winery (you can find it for as little as $25)
There’s lots of surprises here for me. I am not usually a fan of big California reds…especially not of Syrah! But the mind can play funny tricks. When I tasted this big red from Santa Barbara last week, I only knew that the winery was paying homage on the label to the sensuality of New Orleans. Grape varieties?
