Epoch, which was founded in 2004, has quickly developed a big reputation for small production, hand crafted, artisanal wines with abundant personalities. We make the wines with minimal intervention in the winery with fruit from meticulously farmed, estate owned, rocky, hillside vineyards.
The dense yet fresh aromas of black currant, violet and lilac make for a beautiful aromatic core to this blend of 66% Grenache, 18% Mourv?dre and 16% Syrah, which is lifted by anise. The palate is also thick with dark fruits yet cut by tarragon and wild mint, riding a fairly sticky, heavy frame that still needs time to develop.?MATT KETTMANN
