50% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre, 7% Petite Sirah

 

Catapult and Paderewski Vineyards
Willow Creek District, Paso Robles

 

Counter-intuitively, but so indicative of Epoch’s multi-varietal Rhone Blends when young, this wine becomes more convoluted and serious the more you sniff and taste. So outwardly vivacious on the first few sips, you’d think her personality would tame in the glass, but touché, she grows serious and more complex, leaving you yearning for what’s to come. With a great acid backbone and focused fruit, more grounding attributes of earth, sweet tar, dried sage and briney olives present themselves once your senses grow accustomed to her outward fruity beauty.
