Ages 14 months in 70% new French oak barrels

Dark black fruit, intense concentration, and plenty of upside for aging.  One of our three Rhone blends, Authenticity is a Syrah-based blend showing the power, structure and elegance of Northern Rhone grapes grown on the Paderewski Vineyard.  With 88% Syrah and 12% Mourvedre, this wine is intensely concentrated and continues to evolve with cellar age.  Aromas straddle the sweet and the savory, with a delicious meaty character alongside dried herbs, black cherry and vanilla. Its rich, yet vibrant palate exhibits chewy tannins, violets and dark black fruits.  Drink now or with 5 – 15 years cellar age.

Aged 23 months in barrel with 100% new French oak

A traditional-styled wine for the passionate Rioja lover.  As with many Rioja wines, our 2007 Tempranillo patiently aged in French oak barrels (23 months!) waiting for flavors and tannins to co-mingle perfectly. True to its variety, this wine plays on the senses differently than our other wines, yielding a new and exciting tasting experience. This wine presents smoky red cherry, red plum, leather and brown tea leaf flavors with a nutty, caramelized, refined and textured palate, indicative of its prolonged barrel age. Drink now or with 5-10 years cellar age.

A beautiful expression of Grenache… floral-laced fruit, spice and velvety texture.
One of our three Rhone-based blends, Veracity is Epoch’s exuberant and voluptuous ‘GSM’ blend, loaded with floral-laced fruit, spice and velvety texture.  The 2007 Veracity shows inviting aromas of sweet citrus flower, candied orange peel, black raspberry and sassafras leading to a bright and soft, lush palate with intense berry fruit and cigar box spices.  Beautifully perfumed with a fruit-forward and rich mouthfeel, this wine will make a Grenache-drinker out of anybody.  Drink now or with 5-10 years cellar age.
