- View: This berry-red wine shines in all shades of red in the right lighting. This unique colour is due to the large variety of grapes used in this wine.
- Nose: A fruit-juicy scent, with a tinge of alcohol, is the main scent of this wine. One fruit scent that stands out is that of cherries. Other scents include chocolate, vanilla, and pepper.
- Mouth: On the palate, bold fruit flavours, namely of cherries, dominate the tongue. Peppery oak spices cut the sweetness of the berries. All this is followed by a chalky aftertaste.

Reviews of Ernie Els Wines Big Easy Blend 2017
Intense ruby tone. The outstanding flavour is of red roses, without any doubt.. Oily, unctuous.
We paired it with meat but I would have prefered to pair it with another dish.
