Epoch Estate Wines Veracity Red Rhone Blend 2014

$64.95

95 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. 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck:  "The GSM blend of the estate the checks in as 66% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre and 16% Syrah (more Grenache than normal), the 2014 Veracity offers a classic Paso nose of sexy, ripe black fruits, melted licorice, charcoal and roasted meats. Deep, rich and concentrated, it cuts a tight, focused path on the palate, with plenty of tannin, terrific freshness and a great finish. Like all these 2014s, it has terrific purity.... ...Epoch’s Jordan Fiorentini has knocked it out of the park with these latest 2014s and 2015s, and I suspect these are the most complete, balanced wines from her to date. While the estate is located on York Mountain, all these wines come from their estate Paderewski Vineyard located off of Peachy Canyon road, on the westside of Paso Robles. As I hope the reviews and scores show, these are terrific wines." 94 Points Robert Parker: "A blend of 66% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre and 16% Syrah, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2014 Veracity Proprietary Red has a gorgeous baked raspberry and kirsch nose with hints of Indian spices and smoky bacon plus a waft of garrigue. Full-bodied, with a firm frame of grainy tannins and lively acid reining in the gregarious fruit, it finishes with lingering earthy accents. 875 cases were made."

Just a nice bottle from a great vineyard. As this vintage has a higher percentage of Mourvèdre it was a little tight to start. Then opened into a beautiful exhibition of GSM

Dark red color. Alcoholic, aromatic red fruit nose. A barrage of interesting red fruit on the palate with a strong oak finish. Probably drank this way too young. This is 15+% and you feel it!

BLack cherry and licorice dominates the pallet, while a beautiful nose Leeds to a long finish from this macerated new world cuvée

Very drinkable red. Tried at the Epoch tasting room outside of Paso Robles. My girlfriend who typically doesn’t care for reds really liked it.
