INGENUITY VERTICAL

 

What it is All About:
Epoch’s Ingenuity is what we call our California Rhone Blend. Every year it is a combination of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah grown on both our Paderewski and Catapult Vineyards. Petite Sirah is not technically a Rhone grape, however, we planted it to honor Ignace Paderewski who planted it on our same calcareous soil back in the early 1900s. Having Syrah parentage, Petite Sirah beautifully with our other Rhone grapes and adds a special kick which gives Ingenuity its unique character. Amazing color, flavors of boysenberry/blackberry, earth and minerals with big chewy tannins – these are all traits that Petite Sirah contributes to the blend… nothing Petite about that!

 

Tasting Fee:
$30 per person, waived with each $100 wine purchase.
E3 receive two (2) waived tastings
E6 receive four (4) waived tastings
E12 receive six (6) waived tastings
