The Big Easy 2010 is richer, fuller and more bombastic than previous vintages. An alluring kaleidoscope of black fruits, Christmas cake, liquorice and cinnamon tempt your nose, leading to a dense and full-bodied palate. Abound with spice from the dominant Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon adds punchy tannins and a robust structure. Floral and savory notes from Mourvedre, Cinsaut and Vigonier all contribute to the exotic rhythm of the Big Easy. Finally rounded-off by the gentle, sweet-fruited finish from a dash of comforting Grenache. Delicious now, it will swing easy for another 5 years.
Blend: 60% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Mourvèdre, 6% Grenache, 5% Cinsaut, 3% Viognier
The 2010 Big Easy (Red) is a blend of 67% Shiraz, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cinsault, 4% Mourvedre, 4% Grenache and 3% Viognier. It has a succulent bouquet of dark cherries, mulberry, dark plum and honey that are very well defined. The palate is sweet and rounded on the entry with a slight bittersweet edge. There are copious layers of dark plum-infused fruit laced with tangerine and honey notes. The finish is nicely defined with ample freshness. This is very fine and great value to boot.
