Vinous | 92 & Rosé Roundup 
Light, brilliant orange. Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of dried red berries, blood orange, rose pastille and fennel on the assertively perfumed nose. Offers palate-staining redcurrant and tangerine flavors that are given lift and focus by a chalky mineral nuance and a vibrant floral note. Impressively concentrated yet graceful and precise, with superb finishing precision and lingering florality. I’d put this suave, strikingly balanced wine up against all of the top pink Bandols, all day and any day. – August 2016 (Josh Raynolds)

 

Wine Advocate | 90
Made from a mix of Mourvedre, Grenache and Syrah, the 2015 Rose from Epoch offers terrific notes of strawberries, herbes de Provence and citrus in a medium-bodied, balanced, refreshing style. It’s a seriously good rose that will be very versatile on the dinner table and drink well through this time next year. – August 2016 (Jeb Dunnuck)

Wine Advocate | 90
A smoking good rose that’s made in a dry, Provencal style, the 2012 Rose delivers up notions of orange rind, mineral and strawberry with a fresh, lightly textured palate that has solid length and richness. Drink it over the coming year or so. Drink now. – August 2013 (Jeb Dunnuck)

International Wine Cellar | 90
(made from two-thirds syrah, which was vinified with whole clusters, and one-third saignee grenache): Pale orange. A high-pitched, spice-accented bouquet evokes strawberry, blood orange, baking spices and dusty minerals. Lively and silky in texture, offering suave flavors of red berries, citrus fruits and candied rose. Finishes on a refreshingly bitter note, with very good energy and precision. – November 2012 (Josh Raynolds)
