The last stop on our wine tasting trip to Paso Robles was to Epoch. I liked the vibe here with its modern rustic tasting room and definitely would recommend a visit. Epoch is set atop Paso’s York Mountain, one of California’s smallest AVAs, producing Rhone-based varietals in these West Paso Robles Vineyards. We sat outside overlooking the horse pasture (because I am a horse lover, this trumps a vineyard view for me). We also had an outstanding server, Abbey. Tasting out of plastic cups took away from the tasting experience, but overall it was enjoyable. Tasting included the following ($30/pp) ➺ 2019 Rosé (62% Mourvedre, 21% Grenache, 17% Syrah) $30 ➺ 2019 White (47% Grenache Blanc, 42% Viognier, 11% Roussanne) $35 ➺ 2016 Sensibility (97% Grenache, 3% Mourvedre) $75 ➺ 2016 Veracity (51% Mourvedre, 36% Grenache, 13% Syrah) $70 ➺ 2016 Estate Blend (58% Syrah, 19% Syrah, 17% Grenache, 6% Tempranillo) $60 ➺ 2015 Tempranillo $75 We liked their wines and took several bottles home. We have already opened the Tempranillo, which was aged 19 months in French oak barrels (60% new). It definitely needs decanting and time to open up. This is a big, bold, full-bodied, high alcohol wine (15.5%). Leather, dark plumbs, earthy, dark fruits, very savory, some spice on the finish. It was better the next day. Personally, we thought it was overpriced at $75, but we are used to the prices of Italian wines. . . . . . . . . . . #pasorobles #pasorobleswine #pasowine #pasorobleswinecountry #pasorobleswineries #winelover #italianwinelover #winetasting #youcansipwithus #winenot #instawine #winesofinstagram #winetime #wineoclock #winestagram #wine #winemoments #wineblogger #winetime #californiawine #winetravel #visitpasorobles #winecountry #centralcoastwine #paso #epoch #epochwines #yorkmountain #tempranillo

Sunday night quarantining with another live @questlove set on Youtube Live. Tonight, it’s Prince Part 3. To go along with ?uestlove tonight is this bottle of 2015 Epoch (pronounced “Epic”) Ingenuity. I first tried Epoch on a beautiful Summer evening at @robins_restaurant in Cambria. It was a family trip up the coast from L.A. to Big Sur. The wine was a recommendation from the waiter and seemed to pair perfectly with hangar steak, the gorgeous outdoor garden and a beautiful moonlit night. Even the kids weren’t being complete a-holes. I found myself enchanted by the wine immediately but remained cautious. I’ve certainly been the victim of vacation wine goggles before. When I’m relaxed, enjoying myself and feeling (uncharacteristically) at peace with the world, I could be sipping on Listerine and somehow think it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever tasted. So, in order to verify my infatuation, we stopped by the Epoch winery in Paso shortly before the apocalypse began. With a more level head, I decided for sure that Epoch is indeed the real deal. The Epoch Ingenuity is a Syrah dominated blend with Petite Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache. Big, ripe and bold, this is no joke. Strong, aggressive and brutally honest. This wine isn’t afraid to get in your face and tell you the truth. But under the surface of this heavyweight there somehow remains a hint of kindness. A soft and subtle sensitivity that can only be reached after weaving your way through the assertive outer shell. Layered, complicated and worth taking the time to get to know better. At $70 a bottle it may not be a run of the mill week-night choice, but on another Sunday night on lockdown, with Questlove spinning live Prince tracks in the background, it pairs perfectly. ************* #pasorobles #epochwines #pasorobleswine #pasorobleswinecountry #pasowine #syrah #winelover #winestagram #redwine #winereview #winery #californiawines #questlove #winetasting #syrahblend #ingenuity

Kristen and Lindsey,

 

Becky created an amazing experience for us at your tasting room yesterday. She’s clear and passionate about the history of the winery, working for a great family, and the wines of Epoch. Becky is a keeper for sure! We loved every wine we tasted and took some with us to share with friends at home.

Thank you for your hospitality!

Entourage Members, Jeff & Lori Watkins, enjoyed a bottle of Epoch at their firm’s board retreat at the beautiful C Lazy U dude ranch in Colorado! (5/11/16)

We just returned from a long weekend 25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration at the One & Only Palmilla Los Cabos when our Fall Allocation of Epoch arrived.  In true feline style, our cats had as much fun as we did with the unpacking!

 

Happy Thanksgiving to the Armstrong and Epoch Estate Wine Families! From, The Runkles, Entourage Members (11/11/15)
Hi Epoch,

 

I wanted to share a recent Epoch moment.  We recently put together a blind taste “shoot out” of a Tempranillo from West Side Paso and the Epoch Tempranillo to identify the best of the best in Paso.  You will be pleased to know that Epoch was the hands down favorite, with 5 out of 6 votes.  Of course a good time was had by all with the evening capped off with acoustic guitar playing and loud singing.  An absolutely awesome night.

 

Epoch wines are sure leaving their mark on us, always impressive and exceed expectation.  They are now the centerpiece of our cellar.

 

Much respect and best wishes to the team!

 

– Jeff and Marti, Entourage Members (6/6/14)

Several weeks ago my wife (Kelly) and I came in to Epoch and had a wonderful visit trying your various wines as well as having a nice conversation with you and your colleagues.

 

We were drawn to your winery because my wife and I attended, York College of PA, and we thought your heritage was very interesting.  Additionally, you provided us with lots of great wine to bring home as well as a large quantity of corks.  In exchange for the corks we promised some photos of the projects we use them for, do here are a few pictures.

 

Thank you again for a great afternoon, we will visit again.‎

 

-Chris Muklevicz (2/14/14)

 

Greg and I came to San Luis Obispo the weekend of October 18-20 for a District Rotary Conference.  We visit Paso Robles and the Santa Ynez Valley on a regular basis for wine tasting, but had never been to Epoch.  We fell in love with their wines, staff, cat, and the Percherons!  We joined the allocation wait list and will be back!

 

-Judi Bumstead and Greg Kaapuni (10/20/13)
My Epoch Moment – BTW, I think ‘Epoch Moment’ is an oxymoron, as ‘epoch’ actually means a distinctive period of time, but I digress… – was the celebrity drop-in of actor Adrian Grenier this summer as we were tasting blends of out ’10 red wines.  The wildly popular HBO series, “Entourage” was down to its last few episodes, and as huge fans of the show and Vinny Chase, we later named our wine loyalty club, “Epoch Entourage”, after this Epoch Moment!

 

-Liz Armstrong, Epoch Owner (4/11/12)

Team Epoch,

 

I should of sent this email last week since the bottle was consumed on March 2nd but have been in a Veracity haze since then!  I wanted Bill to know that what he claimed should happen [Bill claims that Epoch wine will lead to a “luck night” if you catch our drift] drinking the bottle did in fact.  It worked so well that the man in question wants to plan a trip to buy a case of Veracity.  I have attached 2 photos as to our view while we were drinking the entire bottle.  I will be in touch with Jordan about coming to the winery maybe in May so we can buy that case and most likely more.

Can’t thank you enough…really.

 

So you know our first date was 38 years ago and have just reconnected so all the more fun to tell him the story [Epoch is the best wingman] and share the wine.
