MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI
In some special vintages, Mourvèdre has it all and stands alone as an über full, über soft and über unforgettable wine. 2014, like 2013, was an exceptional vintage for Mourvèdre, and thus we had to leave it by itself yet again and bottle it as the vintage Creativity. The richness of the 2014 vintage is not overplayed in this 100% Mourvèdre. Lush and rich earthy bass notes are meaty, rooty and foresty at rst take, however, lavender perfume, bing cherry and red plum fruit subtly make their way into the glass with air.

MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI
Our closest de nition of Grenache purity – 100% Grenache aged in 100% concrete and 100% Paderewski Vineyard. Eighteen months in concrete has preserved this wine’s beautiful Grenache-driven red strawberry fruit along with notes of fresh herbs, orange and ginger root. At the same time, concrete aging has imparted a seriousness to the palate apparent in this wine’s pure, layered texture, unadulterated and in her proverbial birthday suit. This wine will be an exciting ride to watch develop in your cellars.

MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI
This lush and vibrant West Paso Roblean GSM is unabashedly fruit driven, but don’t underestimate her age-ability and pensiveness. Upfront she is all red, juicy fruit and sweet orange, however, as she breathes in your glass, the intricacies, albeit idiosyncrasies, of a Grenache-based GSM will entice you. Bursting with fruit, great delineating acidity, sun-drenched herbs and crushed rock minerality, she gets more complex with air and most de nitely needs time in bottle.

MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI
One luxurious sip and this voluptuous, irresistible beauty will have you clicking your heels together and thinking “there’s no place like Paso.” All dark berry fruits reign supreme here - blackberries, boysenberries, blueberries – and have quieter accompaniments of roasted herbs, vanilla bean and barrel spice. She’s de nitely showy, but her billowiness is also her charm

MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI
Remember to drink in the now with this delicately colored and exuberantly flavored happy drink.  As a wine, Rosé has so much to say, yet is completely unpretentious.  She’s an actress that looks different in all her various roles, able to pop up at dinner with the queen in the finest crystal or poolside in a solo cup. Let the exotic pineapple, guava, lime and strawberry character and mouth-watering acidity make you walk a little on the lighter side of Rhône grapes.

MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI
To look at Grenache Blanc and Viognier, you might think, “what would their kid look like?” Well, these two have hatched an equal-parts lovechild as our newest generation of Epoch White. Like a good child, she represents the strengths of both her parents. Sporting all the sea-salt minerality, grapefruit, white flower, and fresh hay of Grenache Blanc, and her Viognier roots contributing ginger, rose oil, and fresh peach, the combination is fresh and bright, yet weighty and age-worthy: the perfect union.
