Big Easy epitomizes and reflects Ernie’s manner; big in stature, gentle in character. This wine offers spicy, savory richness, and as the name suggests, the Big Easy is bold in flavor yet easy in demeanor. The palate is lined with chocolate, spice and sweet cherries. A peppery nuance adds further character, all framed by a fine structure and juicy core.
