97 Parker - New Paso Cult Wine      
Epoch Winery is a phenomenal new label from Paso Robles.  Justin Smith of SAXUM is consulting winemaker - not to be missed while still available.

97+ Points Robert Parker:
"Composed of 47% Grenache, 34% Mourvèdre and 19% Syrah, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Veracity Proprietary Red leaps from the glass with beautiful violet, rose petal and mandarin peel notes over a core of crushed red currants and blackberries, plus hints of baking spices and forest floor. Full-bodied, the palate is packed with perfumed black and red fruits supported by firm, velvety tannins and great freshness, finishing long and multilayered. Simply gorgeous. 866 cases were made....Superstar winemaker Jordan Fiorentini continues to keep Epoch Estate near the top of the peak in Paso Robles, and these latest 2015s and 2016s are some of the finest wines I’ve tasted from her. These are classic Paso Roble’s Rhône blends that mix the best of California sun and richness with a sense of purity, elegance, and balance. Don’t miss them!"

97 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
"The GSM of the estate, the 2015 Veracity checks in as 47% Grenache, 34% Mourvèdre, and 19% Syrah that was brought up in a mix of concrete tanks, neutral barrels, and 24% new barrels. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a kaleidoscope of blackberries, leafy herbs, pepper, underbrush, and spice aromas and flavors, this beauty hits the palate with awesome purity of fruit, building richness, and ultra-fine tannins. It’s a tour de force in Rhône blends from California that I wish every reader could taste...




Epoch's 2015 Veracity Red is Grenache and Mourvèdre playing seamlessly together (with Syrah adding a bit of moral support) as they sing our in balanced chorus in this southern-Rhône inspired beauty. Sense the balance between concrete and barrel aging in the wine’s rock-licking minerality, gorgeous fresh berry and citrus fruits and fine tannin.
